Default Crazy noise on right side by exhaust

I own a 2009 Jackpot with the swept exhaust.
I periodically here a noice that can best be described as like bolts in a coffee can bouncing around. It comes and goes. It typically is heard at the high end of 2nd gear and up . When accelorating, etc...
IT comes and goes. I ride without helmet and is heard by my wife on the bike and other riders.I have taken to 3 dealerships and they cant duplicate the noise as they say.
I wanted to ask if anyone out there is experiencing the same....

Thanks,
JT

Was it lowered? If yes, your belt's rubbing inside the pulley cover, and you need to modify it by shaving/grinding it a little, as shown in the picture below.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately it was not lowered.

Does it do it when you're riding solo or only when passenger's on board?

Usually this happens when the bike is lowered, but you could be seeing a combination of a few factors. Passenger on board lowers the rear a little, high RPM in 2nd gear is when the weight of the bike shifts to the rear more than at other RPMs or gears, and an aged rear suspension might not be as stiff as it once was.

I recommend removing the pulley cover and doing a visual inspection on the area circled (see picture in previous post). If it rubs there, you will see the marks on it.

While there; check rear pulley for bolt tightness. You could rub some bar soap on the sides of the belt to rule out any noise coming from it. Lastly, if nothing else is found, check the front pulley to see if it's still torqued down good.

An update to all. While at Daytona I spoke to the Victory team and had someone take my bike on a ride. They are sending me replacment baffles when they return from the Daytona event. They said the same thing has happened with other JP bikes and it was cracked baffles.
I will update more when they come in. I am now looking to get bike lift so I can get under bike to see anything. Dealerships have been unhelpful..
