i have an 07 R6 and i went riding the other day and im noticing a slight metal to metal noise...like almost like a key chain dangling in the wind...but im not sure how long its been doing that ( i ride with my ipod all the time, except yesterday) any ideaas what it could be? i do wheelies and stoppies daily if that has anything to do with it...it sounds almost like something in my triple trees is lose but ive checked everything! whats goin on?!?!?!???

if its a new bike then you prolly just finished braking it in... and there could be metal shaving .... well... i know that a from dealing with cars but it should be the same... i bought my 07 and i had the tick and changed the oil and it sounded good after that

Hmm, when I'm idle or in neutral it kinda makes a grindy (almost diesel) sound... it's not loud tho, but it's definitely noticeable by myself.
