Versys 650 Mk2 - rattle thread
I started a thread on this earlier that got lost with server issues.
Unfortunately the old trick of grabbing fairing panels at various points to see if it stops the vibration does not work as it usually is intermittent when riding and hard to replicate with bike parked on pit stand. It is usually loudest with a combination of road irregularities and deceleration 3000-5000 RPM. It comes from the front and is most prominent on the left side.
So far I have secured all wiring harnesses, taped my headlight shroud in place which was loose, taped all dash panels where they join to no avail. Rattle is not windshield related as it is still present without windshield.
My next step is to use some foam donated from an old office chair to try and isolate the side fairing panels.
Hope others who have addressed this issue or have this issue will comment. The noise is annoying as it is loud enough to drown out engine sounds below 4000 RPM.
