So here's strange one. Have developed a sort of squeaky rattle that comes from the left near the rear ONLY under accelleration. Not in idle, not coasting, JUST under load. Doesn't get quicker or louder when I increase throttle, just is there. I've looked and can't find anything loose or obvious but it's concerning. Any ideas?

I do what I call a nut and bolt check at least once a month. I grab a couple wrenches and check tightness on all accessible fasteners. Normally don't find any thing loose but sometimes I do. All bikes vibrate some and sometimes things work loose. I would do that first and hopefully you will find what is making the rattle. Post back results.

I'll do that, but I've got a funny feeling that it could be a wheel bearing. Changed to a 240 rear 8000km ago and am wondering whether the dealer tightened the belt too much.
