Front End Noise Over Bumps

My V 7K is almost a month old and I have noticed this annoying plasticy clunk when I go over bumps. I brought it to the dealers attention and they could not find anything wrong, and the mechanic said he noticed all the Stroms do it to a certain degree. Has anyone else heard this? I checked the steering head BTW and there is no play. I thought maybe the overflow jug, but not. Anyone?

Just about everybody reports it. It is normal.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

That's cool, I'll relax and enjoy the ride now knowing something isn't going to fall off and cause me to wipe out. Cheers, Scott

Mine does it. My mind was put at ease when I heard the same thing on a SV.
