I commute approximately 40 to work one way. Average speed about 6rpm, I’ve noticed recently that whenever I start the bike there’s a rattle sound in or near my bike exhaust. I can’t pinpoint where it’s coming from exactly, but has anyone else experienced this type of noise?

Stock exhaust btw

I clean it as needed and apply lube at least once a week (depends on the amount of riding I do). It’s not the chain, I’m familiar with that sound, it’s almost as if something on the heat shield is loose and rattling around.

And it only occurs every other day. It’s not a constant thing. The only thing I’ve done differently is use ethanol gas as the store I usually purchase fuel from was closed that morning.
