I know I read something about the actually speedometer head to fix the other 10% but now Iím trying to find a thread with and explanation for dummies (me).
Any easy way to search google is ...your key words followed by VTXOA

Hans&Feet I am pretty sure my radiator cover started vibrating a few years ago at high RPMs, and still does.
I rarely go to the high RPM range but it happens and I hear it then.

It is loose in the mounting.
I thought about adding some RTV at the mounting places.

Rattle at higher rpmís

Iíve tried searching but not sure if what Iím getting is the speedometer housing rattle thatís talked about or not.
It started out as a very slight rattle/vibration that sound like metal to me.
Now itís more severe and louder.
It happens when Iím at to top of each gear and ready to shift. At 75 mph, itís pretty much constant.
Iíve tried pushing down on the nacelle but the rattle doesnít stop.
Iíve tried pushing down on the speedometer face but the rattle doesnít stop.
Iíve tried pushing down on the gas cap but the rattle doesnít stop.
Iím thinking the easy attempt at a fix is to remove the 5 allen screws on the top of the chrome housing and put rubber washers there as seen in a utube video I found.
Iím not very handy but this seems fairly easy.
Your thoughts and input are appreciated.

Greg
