Fairing Rattle

2009 K13GT

Anybody know where the fairing rattle is in the front when hitting the smallest of bumps?

Thanks == Bobby

quite often this is a loose front fender

however it might be time to check the ball joints, you will have to search for the threads on the subject

It's probably in the same place where one of the rubber well-nuts it torn and destroyed.

My rattle turned out to be the gauge pod. It had lost the metal clips that hold it.
