Re: your front end noise. Had something similar on my 09 C50T. Thought it was a loose neck cover, wires rubbing etc. Zip tied everything that might be loose with no help. The shop says might be the front wheel bearings so they were replaced. Guess what - still an annoying random squeel/squak. Took it back and they took the front wheel off again and lubed the speed sensor; voila! - problem solved! No charge for the second wheel removal as they should have considered the speed sensor when the had the wheel off the first time. About 35,000 km on the bike at that time. Sure was a relief to get rid of it as you're not sure how serious it is.
