Popping sound when starting up

Oct. 22, 2022

About a minute or so after starting my 04 GL1800 I hear a pop pop pop about 2 seconds apart. It does this for about a minute or so when I start riding, then stops. The sound seems to be coming from the dash area. I can feel a slight vibration when the noise is present. I have no idea what is causing it. Could it be coming from the stereo system ? The cycle runs perfectly and no symbols show up on the dash.

Can you make a 15sec video, post it on YouTube, and post the link here ??? Be advised, that when you play the video back, if you don't hear the popping no one else will too.
