Yes, this is normal...  However, the wheel should still freely spin.  It should not bind or be difficult to turn.

I was riding my CBR600RR yesterday and today and I heard a rattling bell sound too (not the brake disc contacting with brakes). Man i'm worried  :(, if you find out let me know, if I find out I'll make a post too.
Know the difference between intentions and capabilities.

You guys should take the bikes in to your dealers. Use that warranty!

I tracked this sound down to the throttle side bar end plug.  The screw was tight, so without taking it apart (not recommended, right Jeff) I don't know what to do except live with it.

i remember reading some post here... someone said that the sound was coming from the cam chain tensioner... this guy is supposed to be a mechanic at a dealer... other people seemed to agree with him... ???

I hear it too...guess I'm not crazy then.  It's definitly not the key.  I am going to do a little more investigation myself.
