During acceleration and other hard pulls, my bike has a clatter in the engine. The last bike I owned, an '05 1300C did not have this. With 660 miles could the valves be maladjusted? Anyone have a 1300 with this annoying engine clatter? I should say that during idle, low speed cruising, and no load revving, the bike sounds fine.

clatter

Two things I found were making noise. One were the rear footpegs. Up and they would rattle. Down they were ok. Second I had a sound like a bell ringing.It did this on acceleration ,I was ready to go to the dealer, thought something was wrong. Someone suggested checking the headlight wiring harness, sure enough one of the plastic connections was up against the housing, Tie wrpped it to the other wires.Walla no more bell and with the rear pegs down no rattle. You might check as sometimes noises sound like they are coming from the motor. Good luck
