I had a rattle that continued to get worse as I reached approximately 2400-2600 RPMs no matter what gear I was in. This was more annoying than anything else. I had the local shop rip it off the bottom and no vibrations or noise since.

Exhaust heat sheild rattles once in a great while, but hasnt done it to much yet, butwill fix soon sometimes on those you only need to tightend something or bend something a little bit away from what its rattling against.
