Well left side on a scooter. Probably the rollers rattling around as they get worn. Also may be a belt that is getting ready to break. Check the inside of the CVT soon. If not sure of what to do, take it to the dealer or google "how a scooter CVT works". All scooters emit some noise from the CVT area.

Moving this to the scooter section.

I was getting the same rattling sound when I rode my moped. The noise turned out to be my brains while riding the pothole-infested tarmac around here.
