Bodywork vibes/noise

Hi everybody

Any hints or tips to damp down the vibration and noise of the front lower bodywork? This is noticeable at tickover and low revs.

Add some thin weatherstipping to the lower front corner of the upper fairing along the tab/lip where it inserts behind the lower fairing. it will make it a bit tighter in install but once on the rattling should go away.

If you don't have any weather strip laying around in the gearage, you can use the fabric side of Velcro, cut to size, with the same results. Be sure to clean the area up some with a rag and alcohol so it'll stick.
