This is plain odd.  

Today I ran some errands.  When I got on the bike BEFORE the key was even in the ignition the bike make this strange sound as I raised to level from the side stand to start.

I am guessing it was air in a line??  I filled up and have not heard it since.

My guess is that it was the pressure relief valve on the fuel tank.  Sometimes they make a kind of mewing sound and sometime a kind of woopee cushion sound when air escapes from them.

Thanks, Craig!

Is it something I should be concerned about?

I am close to turning 40,000 miles I was thinking as tooling down the road how hassle free those miles had been then within minutes heard this noise.  I need to stop thinking so hard!

No it is normal, the valve is there to keep excess pressure from building up in the tank.  I'm surprised you have not heard it before.  I've heard mine dozens of times especially on hot days.

I know why I probably have not

I normally NEVER put my bike on the side stand.

When I first got the bike I umm well... stripped the oil level checker on the transmission bolt while in the middle of no where Missouri.  We had to drive 30 minutes to find JB Weld to hold it together and even then it leaked a tad. 

I recently repaired it so now back to side stand perhaps the unevenness plays with the valve?

Side note: As a result I am never allowed to tighten bolts

Actually it will do it when it is on the center stand too.

I'm just guessing but maybe you didn't have your helmet on yet and you usually do?

I've never heard this sound Maggie was talking about but then it's probably because I live in a pretty mild climate.
