I noticed something rattling on my 17 CBR once hitting 5000rpm, I initially thought it was the gear indicator messing with something but I disconnected it and the rattle was still there, turned out the dashboard is making that noise, I know its the dashboard because if I push it the noise goes away. has anyone had this issue? I about to take it apart which I have no idea how but that noise is a big distraction when I'm driving so I have to get it fix one way or another lol.. thanks

It's balance shaft notwithstanding, the 180-degree crank in the 500 is going to inject vibrations into the chassis and plastics & panels which will and do resonate and vibrate.

Find yourself some adhesive-back closed-cell foam weather stripping tape in varying thicknesses. Locate where two panels come together and stick the thinnest piece of tape strategically between them so it can't be easily seen but which keeps the bits from banging against each other.

In your case, find out if the dash is bouncing off something else (I believe it's rubber-mounted so there might be room for it to move enough to bounce off other bits) or if the vibration is integral to the dash itself (e.g. the halves of the case are rattling) and place foam where it's needed.
