Default Tinny vibration

My wife's CR has recently picked up a vibration at certain RPMs. I have ridden it a few times trying to isolate the noise. It sounds like a loose piece of exhaust covering but I have not been able to locate it.
Any ideas?

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

My shotgun's had a loose baffle screw, caused the same annoying sound.
It takes a special tipped bit, but you can grab one about anywhere for cheap.
The screw was on the tail end of the exhaust, facing the wheel.

had a tinny vibration on mine after i first got it. one of the
cheese wedges had a retainer [there are 3] that wasnt pushed
in the slot.funny how something so small could make such
a noise.if you remove them to clean ,make sure they are all the
way on. probably not your problem but something to check.

I have looked all over the bike and don't see any special screws. You have a picture of where you found the problem? This is driving me nuts trying to find the noise.

Sorry for the confusion. It is a noise caused by vibration. It only happens in 1st gear shift up or down at a certain rpm. Sounds like a piece of sheet metal vibrating on the exhaust but they are all tight.

Has me and our mechanic baffled.

I know you probably already checked but I know my license plate/sticker extension vibrates at certain times.
