I have not noticed any strange rattles from that area. Had the freespirits xpipe on now for almost 5000km.

I notice a slight buzz that comes from the bottom right of the motor, but I have listened to vids of stock Bobbers and heard the same thing. It's very slight. I checked all my connections, and all seems tight.

Listen to this vid, and at 2:14 and on when he revs it, you will here that little buzz on the decrease RPMs. That is what I am talking about. (oddly, I don't hear it after he has the BCs installed).

I have this exact same issue. I’ve changed gaskets just trying to figure it out but no luck. Thought I did something wrong on the install for sure but can’t pin point it. I have the Motone x pipe with stock mufflers

Welcome, RideGuy!

I still have the little jingle but when riding can't really hear it.
