Windshield Lowers causing problem
Bought a set of lowers for my 950 Tourer a few months back (I got the longest of the three sizes). Then I started noticing a loud rattle at high rpms that I thought might be something loose on the engine or exhaust. Turns out that it is the bottom of the lowers vibrating and actually emitting a loud rattling/buzzing noise.
I'm hoping to somehow stabilize / stiffen the bottom of the lowers with something rather that buy a shorter set or cut these.
Has anyone here ever experienced this and found a solution?
