Occurs when open full throttle-------rpm specific.4-5K..sounds like high metalic knock in the head...but thinner higher and slightly more metalic than an engine knock.After 5khooks up again;runs fine at all times when not goosing it.Gas is a little stale and has Stabil in it. Just curious

What year bike? The 08's I know of atleast have a buzzing sound at certain rpm that comes from the front end on the triple tree I believe. I never would hear it cause I always rode with music. But after my chatterbox broke was the first time I started experiencing it.
