While out riding this weekend, I noticed a metallic grinding noise which seems to be coming from the vicinity of the left rear wheel. It isnt always there and it isnt a clicking noise like from a CV joint. I checked everything and found nothing unusual. Even pulled off the wheel with nothing found.... I had a friend drive it real slow with me in the back and the noise seems to go away depending on the how much the suspension is loaded. Any ideas on what might be causing this? It only has 370 miles on it.:question:

brake calipers rattle.
ride the brakes lightly with your left foot and see if the rattle stops... if so you can adjust the caliper to take out some slop.

Yeah, I held that so it wouldnt rattle while listening. Amazing how much it does rattles.

Don't forget to check your sway bar mounts. They can loosen up and make all kinds of racket.

Thanks for the feedback. I checked the brake caliper and tightened the set screw about a half turn. It seemed a little loose so now it matches the other side. Finally got out to test it and the problem is gone. :) No more grinding noise. Thanks again for the help.
