2009 VN900 Custom 11,000 miles. At around 27mph in 3rd gear I hear it most. Kind of a howling sound seems like from the front area. If I pull the clutch in it goes away instantly. Worries me because I have no clue what it is or could be. Any ideas? I did record it with my phone and it is kind of audible but sounds different. I could upload it if needed?
Thanks!

Is your clutch cable adjusted correctly? Could be too tight allowing the clutch to slip. Try loosening it a little to see if sound goes away. Should be a little bit of slack in lever.
