I had a weird noise that sounded like it was coming from my fender/wheel area - kind of like a rubbing rattling noise.Turns out when I had the headlight off, I left the two little orphan connectors (for a parking lamp in a sealed unit??) outside of the rubber cups they all sit in. Noise almost cured. I would also check to make sure your fender is centered. Mine got tweaked (somehow) and wasn't, sure enough it was rubbing on the fork tube covers. The combination of the two gave me a rattling and rubbing noise.
