Hey guys,

I have a 2012 R6 with about 2500 miles on it. It's still under warranty and I'll take it to the shop in a week or two but I want to - at least - have an idea of what is wrong with the bike.

So while riding, when I decelerate there is this rattling sound coming from the right side of the engine, after riding for a while I noticed the right pegs were vibrating a little too much as well. It does not happen when the bike is on neutral, everything sounds smooth when I let go off the throttle while on N. The rattle is especially noticeable around 3k rpm, I still have the stock exhaust so maybe I wouldn't even hear it with a full system but still..

I replaced the cam chain tensioner, I was almost sure that was the problem but the darned rattle is still there on engine breaking, bike is running good otherwise.

Did you ever find out what the problem was? I'm having the same problem where when I decel or accel, I can hear some rattling/metal clunking sound and I'm guessing it's either the drive chain or cam chain/tensioner.

Make sure the tension on the chain is good. Auto or manual tensioner?
