Was cleaning up the frame today...Have the motor coming tomorrow...
There's a strange rattle that sounds like it's coming from inside the crossbeam on the upper part of the frame (under the seat)...It's definitely not something that got into the side tubes from the head, it seems to be coming from inside the sealed crossbeam...I'll post a pic...Sounds like a metal nut rolling around in there or something...Inside a welded closed crossbeam?
What gives??? That rattle when the frame is shaken resonates throughout the entire frame...
Please help ASAP as I was about to put the new motor in as soon as it arrived...

Motor is here...I'm holding off putting it in, to see if anyone has any ideas about the rattle???
I almost want to take it to a welder and open it up and pull out whatever the hell it is...I'm positive that it will cause vibration noise...

i would say it could be some weld spatter.

Worked like a charm...Thanks man!
I used a ball pump needle on the end of the spay tip (it threaded right on perfectly)...
Rattle is gone...
