Windshield rattle - August 15, 2006, 03:09 PM

I've taken the faring off a few times now. I have the bike running all nice, which is good, but I have a problem left. I have a rattle in my windshield. I can see the left edge vibrating at low RPMS, and it goes away if Irev it up a K or so, and the sound stops if I grab it with my fingers. It isn't really a problem, but it's making me nuts. Does anyone have any sage advice? Yes. I tightened everything.

Get something rubbery to stuff in there and act as a dampener for the rattle. I used pieces of rubber bands to put in between my window buttons on my mustang. Its a ghetto fix, but it doesn't rattle, and you can't see it. You don't have to worry about look with a bike.

I'm trying to think of something practical you can use, but just search around your house, I'm sure you'll find something that'll work. Maybe a pencil eraser.

what kind of bike? alot of bikes have a rubber insert that the screw goes thru and when tightened it flattens out and makes everything snug and vibration proof..... if youve taken it apart a few times they are prolly missing..

500R. I've got a few bicycle inner tubes around here that might get sacrificed into half inch squares. Thanks for the help!
