tomos rattle starts at 35

Hello forum members.

I have searched for an answer for this question but haven't found any help. Perhaps you have experienced this problem.

My '04 Tomos with BiTurbo and 600 miles starts and runs great. However, when I go over 30 and approach 35, a loud rattle starts to occur. When I back off the throttle, it disappears. The sound seems to be coming from the speedometer or front wheel area rather than from the engine. It sounds like a rapid clicking rattle that is louder than the engine. When I slow down, the noise stops completely.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this and how I might fix it?

Thanks for your time.

well. I hate to say it but sounds like transmission. the only time I ever heard clicking was in a tranny that was little messed up.

other then that I can't help you.

Sounds like the plastic covers to me too. Been there, done that.

I don't think Tomos has no plastics and it does the same thing. Its been rattling off/on for a year now.
