Re: Loose as a goose

There is a plastic backing to the Nacelle that is attached with 2 of those plastic pushpins... perhaps check if they are seated all the way??
It may be that plastic piece you are hearing vibrate.

Re: Loose as a goose

Not sure how it's mounted to the bike (bolts, etc), but a local sport bike guy game me a great idea to remove a rattle from my turn signals on my light bar.

Took the headlight/lightbar off and slipped a rubber washer (like from a garden hose) around the bolt, then put bolt back on, tightened it all back up. This simple, yet hidden solution, has all but removed the vibration from my turn signal.

Realize also this: my vibration was so bad @ ~40-50 mph, that it would blow the filament in the bulb.....about every other day.
