  1. rattle at 5500RPM (2014 v strom 650)

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    I have visited many of these threads and have heeded to advice but have yet to find the source of the rattle, Pre- and post-farkle. I have narrowed it down to the left hand side near the front. Definately a high frquency metallic (washer?) rattle. Can anyone identify it from this video? Bike...
  2. Givi (TN532) crash bars install/rattle

  5. Rattle at 5500 RPM?

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I have had my Wee for about 6 months, and I have noticed that at 5400-5500 RPM I hear a metallic rattle from somewhere below me. I suspect the little metal mesh piece mounted to the front of the radiator, although every time I inspect it the small rubber seats seem to prevent any metal to...
