This is for a 2013 V-Star 650 Custom

I was just on the bike at is was producing a buzzing or rattling that sounded like it was coming from the front of the bike.

Mostly at mid-range RPMs and it would go away it i pulled the clutch. But mostly it would make a lot of noise when I was actually shifting gears.

I took it back to my house and looked at the shift lever. It does have a lot of play. More play than I remember it having ever before. I can slide it around and bang it against the housing and the bolt. There is some kind of clip holding it on.

Is there any way to reduce the amount it can slide around on the post it sits on?

I cleaned out some dirt with a tootbrush and sprayed lubricant on it. It sounds quieter when I shift gears now. There is a still a buzzing/rattle at mid-rpms that seems new. Maybe it isn't the shifter, but something else.
