A clink-clink sound in the headlight when going through bumps?
I hear a noise, like a clink-clink, when I go with my 2018 CB500F through bumps in the road, but only when the bump is somewhat stiff. The sound is like that of a metallic piece hitting against some hard plastic, more or less. The sound comes from just behind the headlight, or perhaps from its inside.
I've tried to replicate the clink-clink sound, while stopped, by putting sudden pressure on the front forks and then letting go, but the front suspension dampens my efforts and I cannot make the sound happen while stopped. But when in motion passing through some brisk bump, it happens again and I can hear it.
I've investigated with my hands all around the back of the headlight and I cannot feel any loose thing there. Everything feels to the touch as being well put and properly fixed.
I'm beginning to fear the sound comes from the inside of the headlight, perhaps the soldering of some LED has gone?
Anyone else has experienced this?
PS: My instinct tells me this it is not a serious problem, but it is very detrimental to the joy of the ride. I guess you know what I mean.
PS2: The sound in question is not caused by the keytag or the key. I've tried going with the "naked" key, and I still hear the clink-clink when through bumps.
In the long run, all fuel is exhausted.
