Question Suspension/frame making noise when loaded.

I am getting a "clunking," loose bolt sound when loading the suspension/standing the bike up.
Cannot seem to isolate the spot with help.
Im preparing to start checking everything with torque wrench.
Any suggestions before I see the suspension guy?

Is this coming from the front suspension? Do you also hear it when you hit bumps at a relatively slow speed when you have no wind noise?

It sounds like its towards the rear, but then to mid.
Swingarm? Checked the nut behind shift link and it was snug.

Push down on the rear seat and see if you can pin point where the noise is coming from. Maybe it's the spring rotating slightly or moving on the shock.

I hope its only the spring. Will check it.
If I load it from the rear it does it about as frequently as standing it up...about every other.
