Mine whistles at about 45mph. It comes from the wind passing around the right turn indicator and the windscreen.

Yeah... I don't hear the whistle when I am actually up to any real speed. It is only at very low speeds (<20mph) or sitting at a stop sign that I hear it. Since I don't have a windscreen, I wouldn't get this kind of whistle anyway.

Mines a big bore and when it whistles it is deafeningly embarassing extremely loud, can't find prob and it goes away when taken to dealer,.
