Of course without a tach, I don't know what RPMs it occurs at, but when I get to 25 mph in first, 41 in second, and about 54 in third, the front fender resonates and creates a loud buzz.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a fix?

Are you sure it's the front fender and not the speedo dashboard? I suspect it's the speedo dash. If that's it, 3 rubber washer between the housing and the tank bosses will cure it.
I haven't heard or read of any instance of the fender rattling, but tons on the speedo, including mine.

+1 yep what he said. Also check the headlight bucket as well. Unfortunately another source of "the buzz"
