when i got the bike with 1000mi on it I had to tighten EVERYTHING. Even the tire hugger/fender in back was loose. I just recently had to replace all the heat shield washers because those screws had backed WAY out.

I now have something that almost sounds like a bell. No idea what it is yet.

Thumbs up Vibe/noise 4000 rpm

I had a vibration/rattle noise at around 4000 rpm, spent months tightning and checking things, no good.
Decided to check the timing belt tension, they were loose, adjusted the tension and all fixed.
I have 12000 kms on my bike, it had been diong it for a few thousand prior, and was getting worse.

update - I thought the rattle was gone but it's not. It's as others describe, up front and around 4k on accel and decel. It's going in for it's timing belt change/valve adjust - hope that's all it is. Otherwise the bike is running fine.

As it turns out, the vibration came back. It was the exhaust heat shield vibrating, only when hot.....screws were tight. Fitted a washer under the screws and all good.
Belts needed tightening anyway!
