ST3 Gauge fairing rattle?

It's been talked about some in a previous post. After going over a sharp bump my top front fairing snaps back and makes a snapping chunk sound on my ST3. I can't tell if this noise comes from the gauges or the plastic tail on the inside fairing trim? Is it normal for the gauge cluster to have play in it on the ST3? I'm trying to find out what's the best fix for it.

mine did the same thing and it turned out to be the black plastic flexing and hiting a nut directly in front of the steering head bearin nut.
solution was a small 1"x1"x 1/4" thick peice of foam with a stick side or dbl face tape .
just tap around gently with your finger and you will find it
