Got a rattle

And can't fcuking find it! Starting to annoy the piss outta me.

Its a metallic rattle coming from the brake lever area up by the back of the high beam headlight. only does it at certain RPM's (6k-8k) and I can't duplicate it by revving it in neutral.

Was wondering if anyone has encountered it, and if so, for the love of God...please tell me what it is

Mods: HID conversion, CRG levers and full stainless Arrow system.

I've considered it being the lever, but nothing is loose on it hardware wise....but will throw the stock one on to eliminate it if I have to


Thanks in advance

You're getting warmer... almost red hot

It sits up underneath where your headlights are, kinda below your intake. You might be able to reach your hand up under neath there and feel around for it. Put your hand/arm in between the fairing and the tank, kinda by the forks... and then reach up in there....

My bike has the same kind of rattle. Happens about 4-5k and only when moving. Full Leo Vince exhaust, both HIDs, CRG levers and AP rearsets. I will check my horn but I think it may be the exhaust springs or plates from the full system. Just thinking.

Sounds like a washer rattling on a loose bolt.

Yes! That's exactly what it sounds like....I considered an exhaust spring, but the sound is too loose...lol

rattle over 4k rpm

hey guys do any of you have a weird rattle noise coming from the front end at over 4000 rpm.
It sounds like a loose bolt somehwere on the front by the clip ons but everything seems tight and it does it right over 4000 rpm and it doesnt matter what throttle position its on either. Sounds like a loose bolt with a washer just rattleing away, idk how else to explain it.

Got a rattle

They didn't find it either.

Tell us what you have added to the bike or if it's bone stock.
