919 power-on whine

You know that little whiney noise the bike makes when you flip the kill switch on? I assume it's the FIs... maybe priming the engine?????
Anyways, I usually wait until it stops to crank the engine, but sometimes I don't... is that a bad thing?

Best for full pressure to build but it's not going to hurt it if you have
premature estart-u-lation! LOL...

You will be fine, don't sweat it!

I was just in the local stealership and I do mean stealer. They have an 07 919 for sale with ~3700 on the clock for $7500. A little beside the point, the key was in so I turned it on to get the miles and noticed there was no whine. What's up with that?

There is a dealership here that has new 07s for $6999. They were $7400 in april when I paid $6700 for an 06 with 700 miles.

I've alway heard you only use the kill switch for emergencies. If used frequently it may fail.

I think you've got something wrong there if you're talking about a Honda. If used frequently it will work perfectly until the day you die.

I don't think I have EVER used a kill switch. Of course, other people have used kill switches on my bike(s) and I am left wondering why they wont start. You hit the starter and the bike wont kick into life and you instantly boil over on the inside, wondering what has gone wrong. Then somebody turns the kill switch back to the normal position. You feel like kicking him because you didn't notice that... Then all is better once you get the breeze in your face...!!!
