Under acceleration in any gear, I'm getting an annoying rattle.. My hunch has me to believe that it's the screen on the oil cooler.. Anybody else have experience with something on this line??

I'm going to hunt down some neoprene washers to stick between the cooler and screen. I'm thinking one of my old 1 1/2" O-rings from my old BMW's oil filter might do the trick..

Do you have Givi crash bars? The spacer where they join in front of the oil cooler loves to rattle. Ive got to tighten it every couple of rides.

I installed a set of GIVI engine guards on my V last week. I filled the ends of the tubes with silicone before it put in the spacer and bolted them together. No sign of rattles so far.
