When you guys heard the rarrle, was it obvious it was coming from the tank area?

Not overly obvious at first, but when it was rattling all I had to do was put my hand on the gas cap to silence it, so yeah, you can definitely determine if it's the gas cap doing it.

No, it just gradually appeared, and I thought for the longest time that the lifters were making the noise, or something in the top end. I felt like an idiot when I finally realized that's what it was. But FatBob2018 is right - all you have to do is put your hand on it and it stops. If you're paying attention, you can even see it moving.

No mine did not so I tightened many fittings shimmed with gasket paper all the fittings for the mudguard /lights mounts ,shimmed the foot pegs and still had the buzz every time I went through the gears.
I was riding and I put my hand on the gas cap , the buzz stopped. But there's no other rattles or hums at all , quietest running chassis of any HD I ever owned now .lol
