versys 2019 weird sound, plastic or?

Greeting,
first, apologies in my English language,
Versys 2019,only 1000km, at approximately 4200 rpm front left, produces a strange(weird) sound, like a scrape of plastic on plastic, or the screw is loose. I thought the visor, but si not. Something like a screw does not have a rubber sole and creates a resonance. Any suggestion?
thank you

Easy ride-be safe

There are several places where a piece of fairing may contact another piece, you'll have to find the spot and then figure out if something went loose or broke. Can you reproduce the sound when stationary? Also, the bike is still on warranty, right?

Here is just one post among many on this site regarding buzzing / rattling noises coming from the cowlings that occur around 4000 rpm on the Versys:

Ive had the lid off my 2015 650 many times over 3 years doing this and that. Alot of wiring. I always have several sizes of weather-stripping foam tape on deck and any time I take any fairing off I look at places that contact and use some foam. I developed a front fairing buzz 4000 to 5000 and fixed it by wrapping the headlight assembly like that. Maybe it started after adjusting the headlights! I also did the top of the instrument shroud contact point while I had it off. I have some experience soundproofing music studios and I will also glue dense closed-cell foam pieces to the inside of a bare piece of fairing to "deaden" the vibration of that hard composite material, which will sing a bit and transfer the actual sound and add its own. I dont use earplugs with stock muffler,I like to listen to the bike! But I do have closed cell foam inserts in my helmut where the speakers go, deadens it just enough.
