Maybe something's trapped inside.:grin2:
Seriously, "very noisy" is really odd.
I've had quite a few topcases, never had much for noise as my body usually blocks most of the airflow.
I'm guessing this occurs at higher speeds?
Maybe a Venturi effect causing it?

Hi Jose and congrats on the new bike.
Could you be a bit more specific about what type of noise the box makes?
Does it Rattle?
Does it whistle, like the wind whistles sometimes when you ride?
Does it only make a noise when you ride over a bump?
The cost of BMW top boxes are serious money and this should not happen.
You would expect the one I have fitted to my G310R to be noisy, its a cheap Chinese one from a previous bike (£30 new, see pic,) but it is sturdy, silent and I have no problem with it.
Sorry my fellow biker, it looks like it will have to go back to the dealer,
