i get a slight rattle at a cruising speed on a bumpy road, i've pretty much narrowed it down to something in the braking system... possibly the brake pads.... i dunno

negative, not the keys. i only have one key when i ride, and that's my bike key. and if that's rattling, i'd be astonished.

I'm sure it's alright but just have the shop check it out on your next service.

It's probably your clutch lever, when it starts making the noise just mess around with the lever a little bit, pushing it in different directions. I have an 06 and it does that. Honestly, it could be a number of things and the only way to really find it is to take your time and take and narrow down where the rattle is coming from and strip everything off the bike, loc-tite everything and put it back together.

yeah it kinda sounds like a loose screw would sound; i'm not sure if "rattling" is even the best way to describe it, but it's as close as i could get. i will check the clutch lever and if that stops it, i will let you know. otherwise, i'll spend some more time narrowing things down.
