On my wife's bike, there is a whistling sound once parked. Maybe not all of the time and I believe it is after riding. Maybe while cooling down. Is it possible the gas cap is not sealing well? That is around where it seems to be coming from. Thank you.

That is telling you that the gas cap that is suppose to vent the gas tank is working correctly.
That is the sound of good.
Some dont like it but it is a good thing!

Another question we have had is how does the fuel reserve works on the 500.Is it a separate tank we need to use up so it does not go stale? Does it come from the main tank somehow?

On position - fuel gets through taller pipe.
RES positon - fuel gets through shorther pipe.
It comes from main tank, no separate on our bikes.
There is usually a bit under 1 gallon of fuel on reserve. (0.8 if im not mistaken)
