I recommand taking it back to the dealer to have them check it out since you just bought it. Other than I never heard the noise before.

If it's coming from the front brake then it's perfectly normal. It usually happens when coming to a stop in the last 5 or 10 mph until stopped. Nothing to worry about if it is that.

May be worn pads, loose disc mounting bolt/caliper mounting bolt, or yoke pinch bolts. I assume you've been round the front end and checked tightness of all fixings?

Also consider that old CBR favorite; the cam chain tensioner rattle. Sometimes the oilway in it blocks, causing a rattle. Unblocking it should shift it, if not, time for a new one.

You didn't say if your bike was new or used, only how many miles you've had it for.

Bottom line, if you have a honda warranty on the bike, head for a dealer!
