3400 mile observations on my new 2013

Something on or under the fairing is rattling, vibrating just off of idle, I cannot find it.

I had a new kenda k761? put on the rear, and now I notice a droning noise around 70 mph, (stock gearing) may or may not be connected to new tire.

Fatheroftwo,
Did ya' check and / or tighten every nut, bolt and screw, that ya' could get a wrench on, at the 500-600 mile 'break-in maintenance?

Could be a loose front fairing mount bracket on the steering neck?

I'll check them all again, I hope this does not turn out to be a Japanese Harley!

Thank you for the tip, and reminder.

I had the front fairing support bracket bolts loosen up where the bracket is attached to the frame......directly beneath the ignition switch area. If loose, you will hear a rattle.
