Vibration/Rattle from front fork or instrument cluster

Hey all,

I have 150 miles on my Z now, and just recently a new rattle sound appeared which makes itself apparent starting around 4K rpms. I can hear it riding down the road with my helmet on. It sounds like it’s coming from the top tank/front fork/ or instrument cluster. Any idea what that could be or has anyone else experienced this?

On that note , I did noticed that the instrument cluster does appear to have a little movement or play in it, I checked all the bolts around it and all appear right.


Thanks!

Dumb question - Is it your keys?

Good question but nope that’s what I thought first too, my moto key just simply has a single ring on it, I held it down with pressure...sound was still present.

It could be any one of the small plastic trim pieces on the front of the bike. There are quite a few, and they are mostly held in place by plastic retainer pins. It could also be part of the light harness or connector buzzing against the frame.
