Default weird noise

so i took my bike to the track today n i noticed that when im at high revs...maybe 10-12k rpm i tend to hear a weird rattling noise. I have no idea what it can be. I know it cant be my cctl for a couple reasons. 1. the sound is from the other side of the bike. 2 i have an ape cctl and it has never caused a problem for me for the many many months that i have had it. Any ideas?

I had a slight tapping/rattle on the non-cct (left) side of my F2.... turned out to be a bad valve spring that was slapping a bit at different revs. (now I am in the middle of an engine swap on that old cbr6)
