Default New XR owner question

I bought a 2011 XR last week. 9500 miles, but I'm not worried because of Victory's legendary reliability. And the price was right.

Lovin it so far!! But I have a question.

When the engine is hot and I stop at a red light and put it in N, it rattles. It sounds like it's coming from the engine, but it's hard to tell. I also hear it in first gear as I take off. Everything else seems tight and it runs well.

Is this normal?
