vibration noise at instrument cowling fix
Couple weeks ago a new noise appeared and grew that is clearly the black plastic cowling where the seam is at top middle in front of instrument cluster. When I rev bike I can press with hand and quiet it immediately by just pressing on top center to press that joint gap together. Fasteners appear tight.
I tried something easy by just pressing some electrical tape in seam and may have helped only a little a bit but it is still there (notably at higher RPM accel or when backing down). I was thinking of maybe loosening a tiny bit and putting a bead of black RTV sealer and tightening after it sets up but not sure..
Before I went on to other ideas I thought I'd check to see if others has this and found a good fix.
Any fix ideas that worked?
