        I had somthing similar drove me nuts turned out to be a weld failure on the middle silencer the pipe through and the baffles were rattling like mad just above tickover and it sounder as if it was a heat shield.
        Get it up on ramps and flex the pipe to see

            When the engine is warm and i take the revs to 2000 on standstill and let the throttle go i hear a clincking noise from the exhaust it seems to be.

            Seems alot of people have the same problem but it doesnt bother me.

                had this "metallic sound" after coming off the go pedal at gear change ... i found i'd left the hose from the airbox to the amm poorly fitted and loose as usual down to me being a plank
