Hi Supersport people :)

Anyone else got rattle from mirrors? Riding in second or third gear, low rpms, 1000-1500-2000, coming to a stop, or in heavy traffic. I get a loud rattle, like a small bowl of metal with screws in it, shaking, ha ha. It actually comes from the mirrors. If I tap them(slightly)hard! I can recreate the rattle, its loud too, hear it clearly through helmet, earplugs and engine music.

Its not a big deal, will talk to the dealer at next ocasion. Anyone got the same, any fix? please let me know :)

Regards
Bjørnar

I hear a metallic rattle as you but I don't know from where... In front but not from mirrors
If the dealer can't diagnose the problem you could start removing parts, one at a time until you find the culprit. I know this would be a total pain in the a$$, but maybe worth it for peace of mind. I've been known to do this before, myself. Sadly, my OCD sometimes gets the better of me.

There are single rubber mounted bolts to the both top sides of the headlight chassis under the front fairing, I found the the left one was loose from the factory, later discovered the thread was stripped. Stills needs replacing.

Interesting...is it visible enough for a pic without much disassembly or too much inconvenience?

One data point does not establish a trend.

There are several Tinnerman type nuts in that area, any of which could be loose or otherwise causing a rattle. Only one way to determine the rattle origin.
