Instrument cluster buzzing
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:57:28 AM »
Hi guys,

My XR has a high frequency buzzing noise from what sounds like the instrument cluster / plastic trim around the front cowel. The bars themselves are not buzzing / vibrating, so I can only assume the noise coming from the plastics. Its usually at the point of switching from accelerating to over-run (like when the exhaust pops in dynamic mode), or if held at high revs in a low gear. Just want to check if anyone else has this or if this is just normal?

I recently got a new helmet (flip front) so I can hear the bike a lot more now, so not sure if this is a new noise or just one ive not heard before from having a more soundproofed helmet.

Any tips on what might be worth checking?

cheers,
Andy

I'm sorry to offer this advice: Take off a few of the fairings and refit them.  To me, this is akin to turning off the computer and turning it on again in order to fix an unknown problem. 

Most of my fairing noises come from improper fitment after I removed them myself for various reasons. Generally, I find that if I have to struggle to re-fit a fairing, I'm doing it wrong and will get buzzing or vibration.  :015:

Just checked the mirrors and it was indeed the mirror glass! Didn't even consider the noise to be coming from these. Flicked the right mirror then the left and the left is making the exact noise I've been hearing! Ill try and get some glue around the edges or something to help dampen it a little.

Thanks for the reply guys!  :305:

Mirror glass seems to be a common fault. Mentioned it yesterday when the bike was in for a service. Both mirrors are to be replaced under warranty! :046:
