Honda 919 Idle

Sometimes I hear like a gentle clunk sound when it idles. I do not hear it all the time. Just at idle either hot or cold running motor. I run fresh oil and the bike was never abused. I do not hear it when the bike is in motion only at idle when in neutral. Has anyone else experienced this ? What can it be ?

I think I might know what it is. I removed the cover for the front sprocket and cleaned out the gunk. While I was cleaning I was looking at the center stand. There is a washer on the outside of the center stand held on by a cotter pin and I noticed the washer kind of dances around. I am wondering if that is the culprit. The 919 seems to give of lots of vibration enough to rattle things around.

This begs the question: why do you have your engine running while you're cleaning the front sprocket, let alone any sprocket or chain?!

So where did it state the engine was running while he was cleaning it? Might want to double check before you post random thoughts PV.

I assure you, it wasn't a random thought. deductive reasoning was used to arrive at that conclusion. I sincerely hope I am wrong, but if I'm not...

I would never have the motor running while working around moving parts.
