are your shock bushings shot? If the bolt is not centered in the shock eye then they need to be replaced. I don't know where the picture is but someone will be along shortly with it.



Woody's fairing, Parrot Asteroid, Rockford Fosgate 300x4 and Polk db521 speakers. All mounted and wired. Needs paint!

i did notice that one of the bolts on the upper shock did not appear to be directly centered into or through the bushing..kinda looked like it was lopsided or somethin.

I had the same type of "rattle". It sounded like a metal part was loose somewhere at the rear of the bike. Checked all bolts......nothing found. Finally replaced the shock bushings after reading some comments here on the forum and that took care of the problem.
