Honda Rubicon DCT Deluxe Chattering Noise

Hello all! I've got a new 2018 Honda Rubicon DCT with only 25 easy miles on it. So far I love the machine. However, I recently noticed a strange chattering noise coming from the back half of the machine when going downhill or cruising at half throttle. It's a very unnatural sound. I don't hear it when under power or heavier throttle when going up hill. It occurs in both auto and manual modes. The machine sounds fine at idle and no warning lights pop up on the display. I took it to the dealership and they couldn't duplicate it in their small parking lot. They also said all fluids checked out fine. I don't know what to do next. Any ideas. Thanks so much in advance.

    When you say chattering noise is it metal on metal or plastic rubbing plastic. Those bikes have so many covers that the sound could be from any combination of things. So I'd start by first removing the engine cover plastics to better pin point where the noise is coming from. Unfortunately it's like finding a needle in a haystack.

    On a bike that new, take a video of it making the noise back to the dealership along with the bike.  Make them fix it.

    The rear single disk driveline brake system makes a chattering noise at times.
