MY 2022 GT STARTED RATTLING AT 1500 KLM, IT WOULD RATTLE LOUDLY WHEN HOT AND YOU LEFT IT STANDING SWITCHED OFF FOR A COFFEE BREAK , UPON RETURNING TO START "HOT" RAISE THE REVS TO 2000 AND THE RATTLING COULD BE HEARD BY ALL THAT WERE PARKED NEAR ME ? I WAS ADVISED TO SEE IF THIS RATTLING WOULD DEVELOP WHICH IT DID EVEN LOUDER , SO A VIDEO WAS SENT WITH SOUND TO TECH DEPT SUZUKI AND THEY HAVE NO CLUE AND HAVE LEFT IT TO MY LOCAL SUZUKI DEALER TO COME UP WITH A REMEDY ???? SO A CHAIN TENSIONER "MIGHT BE THE ANSWER" ??? BUT THERE ARE NO CHAIN TENSIONERS FOR THIS BIKE IN OZZ ?? SO ITS ON BACK ORDER FROM JAPAN = THANKS ! HAVE NOW BEEN OFF ROAD FOR 3 WEEKS AND NO COMMUNICATION THATS OF ANY HELP FROM SUZUKI HQ ,NOT IMPRESSED AND EVEN WHEN THE SO CALLED "FIX" IS INSTALLED NO GUARANTEE IT WILL WORK ???? HOW DO I FEEL MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!! RGDS .

I am experiencing the same issue, Although I think mine is almost a knock. I'm right at 4000 miles. I have sent Suzuki Several Video's of the noise. Waiting to see what comes of it. Being that I'm the Service manager I hope to get a quick response. When I started hearing the noise I looked up the tensioner and saw only 2 left in the USA then they go on back order, so I quickly ordered one for the bike. I have it, But I do not think that it will solve the issue. I'm betting its either the Counter balancer or Crankshaft. Love the bike. I hope this can be solved quickly for all of us...

I had a similar problem on a 2012 GSXR1000; the welding tag holding in the catalytic converter had let go, and that created a rattle; it might be the catalytic matrix in the turkey baster has broken free;
