Loud "vibration" noise?

While riding my XX, I notice a loud "vibration" type noise when at the very high end of any gear.

was thinking it was a skid plate but after pulling off my RPM full length skidplate and then running it it is still there. Sounds like a metal on metal vibration. was thinking it could be the valves but don't think so as it only makes noise when riding not sitting still reving the motor. Clutch maybe?

Any ideas as to what this could be?

Do you have an aftermarket exhaust? If you do, check to see if your heat shield/shroud may have a loose bolt.

I have been around bikes in the past where this has been the case. High revs producing a metallic vibration sound.

Could be something else, but it's worth a shot.

I had my fenders off at one point and forgot to tighten the bolts before my next ride...kept hearing this vibration randomly. Luckily found out what it was before I lost any bolts.

Well, lets see:

1) It doen't make the noise when in neutral, thats why I think it is either something loose or possibly the chain.
2) OEM exhaust but original owner had an aftermarket exhaust so I will check all those connection.
3) I too had all the fenders off but this is a metal on metal sound. Will have to go over it again and check.

Thanks for the suggestions. hadn't thought of the exhaust shield or fenders actually. I know the chain needs replacing, has a lot of slop when you jump, etc.

Its ya skidplates. Mine do the same but run Pro Armour ones though. Tried alsorts to cure it but now learned to live with it. Only thing I could find wrong was the center mounting point in the front of the engine using the oem mount , keeps shearing off the mounting bolt. Stopped using this mount and learned to live with the rattle. Rubber mounted the skiplates to !

He eliminated that as a potential culprit, but good thought. I personally haven't had any issues with my skids, just the front a-arm guards. The quad I just purchased also has a vibration, sounds like mine is a loose baffle in the Barkers pipe. OP says clutch maybe? Aren't the clutch baskets known for some noise issues?
