Rattle

I had a rattle in my bike at low speeds. Sounded like the tupperware up front or something under it. It was always when the windshield was all the way down. I raised it just slightly off bottom and the rattle stopped. Imagine that..............

Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

It could be the chrome plastic covers - you can bend the metal clips that hold them in place to make them more secure. If the covers have been removed multiple times in the past it is likely that some of the plastic "tangs" have broken off - in that case replacement is the only cure. You'll need to refinance your house in order to buy 'em.
