really anoying buzz noise from ignition key

was wondering if it is normal for the ignition key to buzzz real load almost like a electrical piezo noise during take off and cruising speeds below 4500 rpm?
I Just bought a Brand New 2008 zx-10r on monday and it is kind of anoying.

search and you will find the easy fix. My 1st gen buzzed, but the culprit wasn't the ignition.

A lot of people also experience buzz from the ignition lock.
Pry the "wings" (one on each side of the lock) about 1mm out so the lock will not touch, and the buzzz is gone.

Actually, I do believe the vibration in the handlebars is a lot less after the ignition fix!

If your windscreen starts buzzing there is a fix for that too.

IMO exhaust is the main contributing factor in causing bolts to come loose. As far as the 10r, Kawi must have overlooked the buzzing front end.
