I think I have a rattke or vibrating noise coming from the front of the bike. I noticed it last season. It sounds like something is touching the radiator metal mesh. I can't figure it out. Im going to go through one of the major services this sat and tighten the recomended bolts but if anyone has any ideas on troubleshooting please share.

Mine rattled. Tightened down the bolts and set the wires differently. Rattle went away.

Same rattle on my 900 Classic. Turned out to be the Head Light Shroud. The fix was to remove the wire ring from inside the bucket and glue the shroud with a couple dabs of silicone. No matter how much I re-bent the wire retainer, the rattle would'nt go away. The silicone worked great.

Thanks for the posts. I have the same rattle. It kind of sounds like someone is shaking 2-3 washers that they have in their hand. I will definitely check the headlight shroud, I messed with the headlight wires not too long ago.

I have a rattle on my Nomad. I think it's something in one of the mirrors.
