Strange ratchet noise after ignition off

I got a 11 DL650. I have been riding in the pouring rain all last week. Today I noticed that after I turn ignition off, there is a short ratchet noise under the tank. It happens for half a second and then goes away. Happens every time. Definitely not a radiator fan. Anyone had similar issue?

Thanks in advance.

Everybody with an '07 650 or later has that. Conjecture is it's the stepper motor for the idle speed control valve resetting.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

+1 on that ...

Sometimes making a wrong turn just makes the ride that much better ,,, go an extra mile it`s not so crowded there!
