Constant "buzzing" when turning power on with keyless fob
« on: February 04, 2020, 08:46:43 PM »
Hello, I just picked up a 2019 F850GS today and to say I'm excited is an understatement.

However, when pairing my helmet and phone in the garage I noticed something and wanted to see if it was normal or an issue.

Here it is - When pressing the power button to turn on power with a keyless fob there's a constant "buzzing" sound when the tft is on, without pressing the start btton. On other bikes I've had, this is usually a pump that only makes a noise for a few seconds and then stops. However, while setting up the helmet ad phone for approx. 6-10 minutes the "buzzing" sounds stays constant and on, it only stops when I power down the bike.

So, is this normal? (hopefully it is) or is this something I need to get checked out?

Thanks so much for any help or info you can provide.

Hi I noticed the same with my 850 and put it down to either the fuel pump or abs but assumed it is normal behaviour with ignition on  :016:
