Strange rattling

So I turned on my bike earlier today only to notice this odd rattling noise. At first, it was like a plastic on plastic rattle, as if the fan was rattling against the shroud (not the case, but a sound example). Momentarily, as I moved around the bike, I heard a metallic rattle that was most noticeable with my ear underneath the bottom of the fuel tank. Any ideas before I call up the shop?

check the fake air tubes that run from the openings in the front of the fairing to well nowhere really as the dump out by the rear of the fairing. They do tend to rattle at times. Well at least mine did till I pulled them out and pitched them.

That would explain the plasticy rattle...I wondered what the hell those were for. But the metallic? Guess we'll see if it goes away.

It could be one of the fasteners rattling.... but it's hard to tell. I think the tubes are there to kind of look like the bike has ram air or some ****...
