Default Annoying sound

So I replaced my CCT and it made an incredible difference! But I still have this noise that I could hear before the new CCT install and its still there.. Its a buzzing type sound that seems to be coming from the front of the bike somewhere? Its winds down as the bike slows and goes away completely when at a stop..

It dosnt sound right so it makes me a bit hesitant to ride it.. and its 70+ outside!!

Any insight?

There is a allen bolt on the lower right side of the speedo. Try pushing on it when you here the noise and see if it goes away. This is what I'm going through right now.

Can you tell if it's coming from the engine? Does it sound hare and metallic, engine rev related?
These things can be bastards to find. I've been living with a tapping noise coming from my engine for 20K miles. Still haven't found where it's coming from. Obviously a noise that doesn't really matter but to me it's a big pain in the *** when I'm riding.
I'll get it one day.

No its not a tapping sound like your describing Henry but just a simply buzzing sound.. its seems faint but I can definintly hear it when slowing down. DEBAU.. this cooouuulldd be what I'm hearing. It dosnt seem to effect the performance at all but once you I something stuck in my head.. it will F*** with me forever!

Check your brakes. Put your front on a stand and rotate your wheel. Most likely there.

I had a fairing that was vibrating against my bike cause a buzzing sounds like that. Felt like a dumbass when the shop stuck a piece of soft velcro on the frame to cushion the fairing and the sound went away.

My front fender was rattling/buzzing... Rubber washers between the plastic and metal cleared up the issue.

Now just to make time to change my CCT, ugh...
