deceleration flap noise?

Hey my 920 4000ish km has this weird sound like something under the fuel tank makes a noise

Low gear decelerating or just after gear change I hear what sounds like a plastic thin flap closing .

I have TC on almost sounds like an airbox flap closing but its fairly intermittent I can't make it happen at will

Any ideas hope the bike is OK , certainly does not sound metallic

My '12 1090rr does this as well. I just assumed it was the actuator for the exhaust flap.
