I have a 2013 Kawasaki 1700, that when you go over small bumps, sounds like the front end is going to fall out of the bike. It's extremely loud, but doesn't affect in the preformance or handeling.

Hi, Dan you may have loose neck bearings, rebuilt front forks improperly assembled, or worn out front caliper bushings etc. I would love to help you with your chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost.

      Unscrew the passenger seat\'s mounting bolt, positioned on
      the rear of the seat, using a socket wrench and a 10 mm socket. Lift the
      passenger seat up and away from the rider\'s seat.

    • 2

      Flip the passenger seat upside down and place it on a clean
      work area. Pry out the seat cover\'s staples from the bottom of the seat
      pan with a small pry bar or staple puller. Pull off the vinyl cover and
      remove the foam from the seat pan.

    • 3

      Flip the seat pan over. Place the Utopia back rest bar over
      the top of the seat pan, following the contours of seat pan. Center the
      bar in the middle of the pan, then mark the location of the bar\'s
      mounting holes on the seat pan with a permanent marker. Remove the back
      rest bar.

    • 4

      Drill two holes into the seat pan at the marked locations,
      using an electric drill and a 9/32-inch drill bit. Place the back rest
      bar onto the seat pan. Screw the kit\'s bolts and lock washers through
      the bottom of the pan and into the back rest bar. Tighten the bolts with
      a 10 mm socket and a socket wrench.

    • 5

      Lay the seat\'s foam next to the seat pan. Mark the
      approximate location of the back rest bar\'s protruding neck at the front
      of the seat onto the foam with a permanent marker. Cut a slit into the
      foam at the marked area, using a sharp knife. Place the foam over the
      seat pan and push the bar\'s neck through the foam\'s newly cut slit.

    • 6

      Place the vinyl cover over the seat foam and pan. Pull the
      cover tight around the sides of the seat and staple it into place, using
      a heavy-duty staple gun. Cut a slit into the seat cover with a razor to
      allow the back rest bar\'s neck to extend outward. Remove the paper
      backing from the plastic boot included with the back rest kit. Slide the
      boot over the bar\'s neck and hold it firmly in place for 30 seconds.

    • 7

      Reinstall the passenger seat on the motorcycle and tighten
      its bolt with a 10 mm socket. Place the back rest over the bar\'s neck on
      the passenger seat. Slip a bolt through the backrest\'s mounting holes
      and into the tube on the bar\'s neck. Loosely screw a nut onto the end of
      the bolt. Adjust the angle of the back rest, then tighten the bolt and
      nut using a 10 mm socket and a 10 mm wrench.

As per what Sev first said.... check all nuts and bolts. Not just the seat/sissy bar mounts, all the engine mounts, swingarm pivots, wheels, calipers, covers, bars, pegs, clamps.... everything. But most obviously the engine mounts, a loose or busted engine mount can make all sorts of odd things vibrate. While you're checking them out, make sure that any mounting plates or braces are not cracked, and that the bolts haven't stretched and are being torqued against their own threads, instead of the mounting hardware.
