This type of problem is hard to diagnose without hearing the actual sound in person, but it's possible you're hearing the oil pump chain.

Does it sound like the rattling is coming from the front, bottom of the engine?

There is a chain under the clutch basket that drives the oil pump. Over time, the chain stretches and gets loose, requiring replacement. It goes without saying that failure of this chain will cause catastrophic damage to your engine, so it should be checked if it sounds like it's on its way out.

Here is a link to info on accessing the oil pump chain on an ST1100:

SOURCE: rattles at low reves only

THE RATTLING YOU HEAR AT LOW R'S IS MORE THAN LIKELY THE CAM CHAIN RATTLING. THE CHAIN TENSIONER IS ADJUSTABLE TO A DEGREE BUT A BIKE OF THIS AGE(IF OVER SAY 10000 MILES) MAY NEED A NEW CHAIN TO ALLEVIATE THIS PROBLEM. LOOSE CHAIN CAN CAUSE CAM TIMING TO VARIATE CAUSING A SLIGHT MISFIRE.
THIS MISFIRE COULD ALSO BE THE RESULT OF DIRTY CARBS. IF SO THEY WILL NEED CLEANING AND SYNCING.

SOURCE: 2004 gt650 has a knocking sound from engine at

hi,most bigbore v-twins have a knocking sound coming from the bottom end,it is usually caused by the tolerance in the big end bearings and normal wear and tear,however in saying that,if the noise is a very metallic type knock,get it checked out straight away,it is quite difficult to diagnose a knock without seeing or hearing the bike running,but if in doubt,get it checked over by a reputable motorcycle mechanic,it will be inexpensive to get it checked over and find nothing wrong,but could be very expensive if their is something wrong..cheers

Choke coming on even in summer, is this right


it seems that your coolant temp senor is what causing this to happen it's natural inless it revs really high and stays above 1100 rpm's after the engine heats up.

Noise in trans or in primary chain


It sounds like the primary drive chain is loose. The way I adjust mine is to take off the upper left inspection cover, start the bike and slowly tighten the adjuster until it starts to wine, then back off until it stops. Rev it slowly and listen for a wine. No wine good to go.

Start and..


Could be your timing chains are very loose, they will make a noise on start up. Also, when was the last time you adjusted the valves? If they are way out of adjustment, ( on the lose side) they will make some noise.
