Rattling Noise and Vibration on 919
Hey all, this is officially my first post about my "new to me" 919. I've had it for three months so far and have been dealing with a very annoying rattling noise. It is to the point where I am grinding my teeth every time it happens, and it is embarrassing to ride by people because I know they can hear it.
Anyways, here are the details.
It occurs between 4k-5k rpm, with a peak at 4.5k, which happens to be my preferred cruising range.
It sounds almost like plastic on metal and is high pitched.
I tried taping and dampening any vibrations in the headlight bucket to no avail, but I am not ruling that out yet.
I also took off the plastic radiator grill, but no luck there either.
It only seems to happen at speed so I cannot pinpoint it in the garage.
I can only hear it in first and second gear, but that is probably because of wind and road noise at higher speeds.
I believe the noise is coming from the front of the bike but I could be wrong about that.
So, if anyone could offer up suggestions of common noise issues and places to look,or has any experience with this issue, it would be much appreciated. I already searched a few topics here and will begin my hunt for this funky vibration tonight.
