Rattling noise

Hi fellas, I've got a better recording of the rattle that my bike makes around 2500 & 3000 rpm. It's a bit hard to hear because of the wind buffeting, and it's much louder in real life. The Suzuki dealer near me says it's induction noise. Any ideas?

Sounds like the common clutch basket rattle which is common. Take a look at this thread

Yeah I thought it could be the clutch, but I had it reworked last year from a place in England. It was vibrating really bad, and the rework fixed that, but it now has this annoying "rattle". Should I get it redone? because I'm really annoyed and feel like selling the bike.

Sounds like intake honk to me personally, I'd ignore it or sell the bike if it bothers you, of course earplugs help too.

Earplugs fix a whole lot of the weird noises our bikes make. That was Greywolf's solution to a lot of the "strange noise" threads.

Just don't worry about it, you're siting on top of an engine and air box. Also be sure you are not lugging that engine, the 1000 loves to rev......not a Harley or cruiser twin.
