Plastic bodywork might not be the source of the noise but it can amplify it dramatically. Check there are no cables, connectors etc rattling behind the panels either side of the steering head or under fuel tank.....and of course check the panel fixings like plastic rivets, captive nut clips etc.

To me I might want to do a track day and go over the limit and I just hate that it is there.

I don't think engineers had anything to do with the limit, it was lawyers.    I have had the bike to 130ish and never had an issue, no side luggage but I did have on a top box.   To me I might want to do a track day and go over the limit and I just hate that it is there.  On public roads I drive pretty slow and mellow, that is how I have the stock tires on it at 10K and they still have a couple of thousand left.

Can you fuel without removing your gloves ? thats my beef - i get your benefit but i hate fueling up at the best of times
No, I can't refuel without removing my gloves but then again with a key I need to remove my gloves because I need to dig for my wallet and get my credit card out.  To me the fueling isn't really different. 

Don't get my wrong, I think it is cool to not need to mess with my key when it is cold out, but otherwise I don't really notice it and key or keyless is not a deciding factor for me.   It was 0% in my buying decision.

My 2018 has a noise at that rom range too. It is not the plastic ears. Still can’t find it and it’s driving me nuts

You got a tire and wheel package for your bike?
Didn't know something like that was offered for motorcycles.
The auto bent wheel thing is something that can keep me busy if it decides to rain here in California, I repair automobile wheels.

Yeah, I always get it for my bikes (and the missus too) - I think it's worth it. If I use it even once, it pays for itself. I have it for the car as well. I didn't know CA had potholes - just pots.

Tiger Explorer - General Discussion / Re: Rattle noise between 2500-3500 rpms

Thanks, I'll look into that.  I checked a lot of "noise" threads but must of missed that one. 

I'd say my noise is lower and more metallic than ears around the signals.
