    Some of it has to do with the bodywork I think, how the sound funnels up by the forks. It also varies with the road surface. On some the tire is quiet, and others loud.

    Makes sense, the 850 does seem to be more open by the fork area, so Iím not sure if changing the tyres would help much.

    Changing tires will help.  Generally, as tires get more agressive, they get louder. Here's a good review of adv tires.
