Vibration/Rattle in front of engine

Is anyone getting an annoying vibration/rattle in front of their engine? My XX developed one over this past weekend. It's not real bad, just annoying. It seems to do it the most when revving it up in first and second gear. It sounds like it up in front, maybe around the radiator.

I had the same thing. It turned out to be the bolt that secures the over flow bottle to the frame and also the bolts holding my Pro Armor bumper. Not sure what one was making the noise, but it's stopped since tightening them.

Mine was the heat shield. Bolt fell out - I replaced it - no more rattle.

I had the same problem after my last ride, and investigation showed that the welds on the lower mount on my Pro Armor bumper had broken completely loose. I see that even DG is having this problem. I am wondering if there isn't some flex in the frame that is causing this since it seems to be a problem with all the bumper and not just Pro Armor.
