Finally solved that front end rattle on my 2002 busa ! tried the usual haunts, steering damper etc, but in turns out as i had the bike on the paddock stand the the brake pads were moving up and down and actually watched them as i rocked the front wheel ! this was easily solved, i undid the bottom allen key screw only on the flat spring on the back of each front brake caliper bent it outwards a bit by pulling it upwards and then did the screws back up again, its worked a treat on mine, no more rattles when riding slowly (not very often, its a busa after all ! ) and going over bumps, taken me months to suss it so hope this info helps one of you guys save some time ! and money, as i replaced the pads twice before discovering it, live long and fast but die free....:lol:
