Hi

my 2005vstar 1100 has developed a strange tinny rattle when it warm an cruising at70 mph.  If I throttle off it stops and when I get back on the throttle it starts again

I don't hear it at lower speeds or if I Rev the engine while stationary

Any one had this before. I'm just about to pull the tank off it and see if I can see anything loose etc.

all help would be great

thanks

Mik

You might want to check the tube surrounding your driveshaft.

Also check your headlight bucket. There's lots of stuff in there that can rattle.
