Stange noise when riding with passenger

Hey all, 
I am a bit of a newbie to the forum and dirt bikes in general, but I do have some knowledge and I've owned a motorcycle all my life.

But, I have a 250 Djebel (very similar to the DR 250), and there is a strange noise that randomly happens but only when I'm riding with a passenger, cant' seem to figure it out. It's like some sort of clanking (almost like there is something metal bouncing around in the engine or trans somewhere). At first I thought it was the chain bouncing around too much, and it was a bit loose, so I tightened to the right specs. Still nothing. It happens when I'm in like 4th or 5th gear cruising pretty steady usually. Any advice here at all would be amazing. Thanks guys.  

Suspension probably. You're on pavement, right?
