Help, strange electrical noise and motorcycle is off/no key in ignition
Ok, after I turned the ignition off and popped off my helmet I noticed this strange steady high pitched squeelish noise like something electrical. It's coming from the gauge cluster area but more towards the left side I think. I went to do some work on my vehicles and 30 mins later came back to wash her (the 750 vulcan). That noise was still going on, very strange, not sure what it is... Any help would be appreciated!
Also a useful tidbit might be this... As I was pulling up to roll her in the garage I turned the ignition and shut her off, as soon as I did it seemed the electric fan kicked in/on and after it shut off there was that high pitched electrical squeel noise...
PS. I feel like this is a stupid question, but whatever... I wanted to pop the seat off but couldn't find the little seat release thing, do I just pop it off with my hands? My old vulcan 500 had a little release you pulled under the left side of the seat. Also I believe my thermostat isn't working either as I haven't seen the needle budge. Today it was 85 degree's outside and I could feel the heat on my legs from the engine/exhaust yet the thermostat remained the same, no movement from when I started her it seemed!
