Question sounds like baseball cards

This past week I started to notice a subdued ticking noise that sounds like it is coming from the front of the bike (2014 650 vstrom). It sounds like when we put baseball cards on the spokes of our bicycles when we were young kids but not as loud. Only happens when getting on the throttle. The bike is still being broken in and has 250 miles.

Anyone have a hunch what it might be?

Have you checked the front forks for baseball cards?

But seriously, it might be a small exhaust leak where the header pipe joins the head, if the exhaust flange wasn't assembled correctly.

There are holes in the sky where the rain gets in,
and the holes are very small, that's why rain is thin.
