Is access to the front sprocket easy?

Aye m8, just need a 8mm socket & extension to undo the screws holding the front sprocket cover in place, you'll likely find a load of crud behind there, needs cleaning out regular. Come back if you find the sprocket nut loose. It should be secured with a tab washer but you can usually tell if it's loose.

I get a rattle sometimes at low revs under a bit of load and it is the fairings. I think I might be missing one of the rubbers on the lower fairing. I got used to it so don't notice it too much anymore. Might be worth a check

I did take off the side panels recently to run some wiring - I will check, Thanks!

The side panels were loose on mine from new at the low point where they locate into a rubber grommet iirc, not had them off recently. Easy check if it's not fitted properly, it'll be loose at bottom.

Just remembered that I had a weird rattle early on with my 2017 Sport, was the lower rear exhaust downpipe mount, the nut and bolt had worked loose:

Whilst you're taking a look a the exhaust mount bolt, just underneath the arrow in that picture is the heat shield for the catalyst.   That could make that sort of noise it's allowed to work loose and vibrate.

OK Guys, the results are in:

I have checked the front sprocket is tight, (it is, tab washer is secure also)

All the bodywork panels are tight and don't rattle.

I can't get any movement on the chain when I attempt to pull it rearwards from the rear sprocket so I dont think the chain is is showing any sign of wear (3600 miles from new) and it is well lubricated.

All the aforementioned bolts are tight.

I have further loosened the chain so it does now (just) touch the underside of the swing arm if pushed upwards hard.

Tomorrows ride will tell if there is any difference with the noise.......
