fairing rumble

I have owned my 2006 LT for 8 months now with no problem except an unpleasant rumble I could hear at low speed or when idling.
When stripping down the tupperware for the maintenance I discovered that the side fairings made light contact with the downtubes (those tubes coming down from the nose area to the sides of the engine) and with the tank.
I put some foam rubber; no more rumble.

I hope this could help some LT owners having the same little inconvenience.

Re: fairing rumble

The fluff side of Velcro works too.
