Re: another strange noise
John would maybe have a better opinion on this, but try loading up the alternator by turning on the high beam, both seat heaters, and the grip heaters all at the same time. If the noise lessens or is eliminated, this confirms it's the normal gear lash in the alternator drive.
Robert, some of them do it and some don't but it's pretty common and nothing to worry about. Mine is only bad when it's a cold start and then it has an obvious rattle.
