Most people I have seen usually ask "Why is my bike whistling". I know when I got my first Kaw I asked what it was.

I did the same thing a couple of times when I first got back into motorcycles. Now no matter whether I am riding home or on down the road, I fill the bike while straddling it to keep everything straight and level. No more overflow or worrying about gas ruining the paint, or catching me on fire.....

Doesn't specifically seem to state in the owner's manual I have but I'd guess the bikes are intended to be fueled on the side stand. If that causes expulsion of fuel, assuming you haven't fueled into the neck, then something else isn't right.
