    So what actually is this "paint can rattle" that I often hear from the L/H side when accelerating a little ?
    It sounds like pre-ignition, but know it's not that.

    Back in the day a bad natch of lower crank gears got thru without proper heat treatment. They were soft and started developing a sloppy rattle as the keyway in the gear got larger. The most I heard of was about 3/16" slop
    That was from Gus at Baxter's in Marne Iowa.

    Paul Warp is correct. The sound only happened at a certain RPM range.

    Also some of the early bikes had a similar sound that was caused by the oil pump cavitating. Same thing only at certain RPM range and temperature.
