Front end rattle

After a month of fighting a rattle coming from the front part of my bike, I found it by accident. You may want to add this to your list of possibles. The fork lock on my 02X has a simple housing where the locking lug just turns up into the slot with the key. The housing for the lock is only held on by one screw upwards into the body of the frame. That screw was loose and rattling like my brain usually does. A little Loctite on that screw solved the problem.

Front End Shimmy

I have heard that rattle too, thanks for the tip. I have another issue, I have an '03 1800R with 24K miles and it has developed a front end shimmy. The front tire has less than 4K on it and has the appropriate pressure. Has anyone else had this issue?
