Does anyone else have this problem that when waiting for a light to change or when the Stryker fires up there is a rattling that seems to come from underneath the bike?

I took it to the dealer when it started to make the nosie, but they couldn't pin point it since it doesn't happen constantly. It doesn't seem to be coming from inside the bike, but more like something is just loose.

Will try to post a video when I can catch it doing it again.

Check the gas tank. Something could have fallen in. Happened to someone I know. Almost ripped the entire bike apart before it was found.

Rocks? I know mine gets asphalt in the radiator cover and up under the rear fender and swing arm and everywhere around that area and I tend to hear it rattle around until it works its way out. Got to love when county roads department cold patches your driveway and doesn't compact it.

I heard the same noise on my bike but never could find out what it was exactly. I only heard it at stop lights and such when I was unable to look for it. I'm not sure if it quit or I got used to it, but now I have loud exhaust and its a moot point anyways heh. I did notice when I changed out the exhaust that it looked as if the front pipe had been leaking a bit, which might have explained a few of the strange noises I heard from time to time.

I have to run to work, but here is the video. I will upload a better quality one when I get back home.
Mine does that as well, and omg do I hate that noise. There was a thread a while back that said the fuel pump made a ticking noise, and I was hoping that's what it was. My bike only seemed to do it when it was cold or just started. Does yours do it all the time?

Its definitely a noisy engine, but I do love this bike.
