My heat shield makes some rattling noise at certain times. When you are riding and it starts making noise, push in the heat shield with your foot.

Not on the right side, but check your chain tension. On my 07 it made a wierd sound when it was too loose.

Do you have a skid plate? I was chasing a vibration on my 07. Turns out it was my skid plate. I isolated the plate from the frame with an old innertube cut into strips.

Hey, thats an ez one.. have to loosen the big axel nut on the R. side then loosen the lil lock nuts on the chain tensioner bolts then use the lil knotches back there on the frame where the axel slides back and forth buddy.
