My 5k rattle goes away at 8k, so I just keep it revved up, baby!
I've covered how to get rid of it numerous times.Even I have this peculiar sound coming from 5k rpm onwards. It sounds like two thin sheets of metal plates rattling into each other...more like a clattering sound. It starts at 5000 rpm and goes away after 6500 rpm. Surprisingly it doesn't sound if I rev the bike stationary at similar rpms...its only while riding. The problem is while touring, I generally cruise at 100 kph and that happens at these rpms...so its kinda irritating to hear that clatter. Not sure where the problem is.
X2, Aufitt!!Makes you wonder what these noobs would say if they bought a non idiot proof learner bike like a whosang, or a megelli etc.
They pick on the worlds most indestructible new motorcycle.. and the fastest selling bike worldwide, somehow wanting to spoil theit post purchase satisfaction and they have no previous bikes to compare to.
they stall it,
they drop it,
they coast it with the clutch in and say thats the way to 'drive' ,
they jam gears,
they crash it,
they do the worst buffoonery methods of operation and maintenance
and so far Ive only heard of one that destructed (and he has not posted on the forum since)
so I'll take these 'my bike is going to break' threads with a pinch of salt and lots of humour.
As long as they continue to refuse to ride the thing in it's power band, the answer is yes, the asinine "rattle" thread will continue, along with a few other choice threads. Those of us who are on our 10th or 15th bike... What the hell do we know? Some of these noobs, just a few, with their "first bike, CBR" and their 350 forum posts think they f**king know it all.Do we need 1000 of these silly threads?
Its a Honda
they dont break.
Even I cant break em.
Nice work!... Sounds like you found some good practical solutions to correct the buzzing sounds emanating from the body work.My rattle was coming from the little metal mount that the top two bolts of the display attach to. It was vibrating loose and causing a buzz at octaves of 4500 rpm. I used some permatex plastic thread lock and put some rubber o-rings beneath the screws for the windscreen. In addition I put some rubber foam over the hole just below the pointy, forward part, where the fairing loosely inserts into the headlight. No more rattle. Now I can hear the engine in all its glory for the first time! It doesn't sound too bad at all! This is actually one smooth running little machine.
