rattle at low RPM's

when my tach gets to about 3k-3.5k and around 5k the wind shield starts to really make a racket. The bike runs very smooth otherwise, but no matter what gear, wheather i'm moving or sitting in a parking lot just revving, i get some crazy rattle on those front fairings and windsheild...

Best way to find the rattle and best way to fix it?

I think you ride a CBR but i'm not sure if i'm right... if it is a plastic rattle check all your screws to make sure that they are tight if it is at idle when revving the engine and you hear a rattle check the cam chain tensioner....

hope this helped...

Check the mounting screws to see if all the rubber washers are in place...

If you are riding a Honda...the RPM range is right for a CCT lifter problem...

Wheelies do make them fall out faster. So does the rumble of a twin.
