Question front end rattle??

well i was riding yesterday and noticed a rattle at crusing and decelleration but not as much at acelleration(maybe drowned out by pipes?)

was wondering if it might be the acct?
i notice it more in the front part of the engine
i dont hear it much at all at idle however
and only so far when its warmed up

any ideas??

acct?

something more serious?

It could be something as simple as a loose heat shield clip. I had a similar situation, metal-on-metal rattle when riding, but no noise at idle. That was until the heat shield screw finally popped out, leaving the clip loose to rattle freely. Then it was noticeable at idle. 76 cents at Ace hardware for a new stainless screw and lock washer fixed it.

i did the gambo thing today and no effect i notice the the oil line tab was bent up so that tells me someone has had the acct off at some point
