I get a whistling noise from my front end when I hit around 40mph, any ideas on what might be causing this. I have an 05 Superglide with 20k miles. I was thinking maybe the wheel bearings were going bad, but not sure. It does not happen all the time nor does it continue the whole time. Kind of comes and goes.

Wheel bearing noise can come and go, when they are first starting to go bad, so rule the front wheel bearings out.
Jack up the front end, spin the wheel (does it spin freely?) and shake side to side.

Does the whistling go up and down with the increase and decrease of the throttle..
