The tip over sensor jingles about a bit behind the headlight.

Thanks Peter, I saw that a little higher up the thread so sounds like it might be it, if you're backing that idea.
I'll check it out.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. It sounds to me like a very light set of keys slowly jingling at those RPMs.

The sensor is circled in red.  There are 2 bolts and nuts circled in yellow, 1 per side, that are extremely loose.  For  some idiotic reason the bushings that go through the grommets are at least 3/32" too long and causes a ton of slop and play.  I took the bushings out and cut them down and put it back together.  Its a major pita due to the location and not being able to hold the nuts to re-thread everything.

I also taped the 2 plastic covers since they were really loose too.

I made almost the same:I was looking for ECU serial numbers and while working on this area I have found the same. But the noise is still there....

Sorry it doesn't seem  to do anything.

I always thought it was coming from the supercharger gears.

I suppose it needs to be free moving and jingly, as if it is taught it wouldn't sense the tip over. To be honest, now I know what it is I've gotten used to it and doesn't bother me as much as it did when I first noticed it. I still hear it but it registers as a normal sound now and doesn't distract me.  :002:
