Hey all I have asked about this before and I am more fully informed in regards to things about my bike so I thought I would ask again. At 5K in any gear a pronounced rattle/metal flutter starts and the noise stops dead at 5.5K. I have no idea what it is. I just had valves adjusted, pulled the clutch basket out and checked it and all was fine. I have a Yosh bolt on, HTEV is removed and a power commander usb. I also have a BMC street filter installed. I just had the valves and basket checked and there was no difference in noise between before and after. My mechanic said it was my exhaust rattling, I unfortunately disagree. It sounds like there is a chain that starts sliding against metal and then it is pulled away abruptly at 5.5K. Any ideas? I thought maybe it was the cam chain but it was within spec, maybe the tensioner giving out? My bike has 17,500 miles on it. Thanks...

my 929 makes all kinds of rattels...Ive had a different motor it if once and it did the same thing. My thought would be the cam chain tensioner tho
