Squeaky, chirpy sound from beneath gas tank.

Anyone else get it yet ? The foam/foil heat shield under the tank started making a squeaky vibration. I stuffed a small thin strip of urethane foam in there between the shield and the tank on the right side. Now quiet. It drove me nuts for two days, until I figured out where the noise came from. At first,I thought is was the speedo housing.

And finally, there is a metallic heat shield under the tank that could be rubbing against something. If just the edge of it touched I could see it squeaking too.)))))

Mine is doing the same thing.... i found where my heat shield under the tank is rubbing on my coolant hose on the clutch side of the bike. I put some masking tape on there and it worked for a few days but now it is back... I havent gotten around to taking the tank off again yet to try to rig something else up ....driving me nuts ...ugh... :eek:
