Another place I've seen people talk about noise is from the fins on the cylinder. I've seen mention of folding up small, sturdy pieces of rubber and putting those in between the fins. Not enough to prevent airflow, of course, just to keep the fins from ringing from vibration.
I'll be working on the same thing your takling about.

Also I have a speedometer Bell F20 that does not work when the motor is running.
Others say sometimes they do that, just return it and try another one.
