Rushmore fairing rattles?
Owned a pre Rushmore model,2012 Ultra and currently a 2015 Fltrx. Like the looks of both fairings but new design is a bit more effective with those vents. However, the newer fairing has had a bit more rattles on my bike than the older version and was wondering if anyone else had that issue. A couple times in the past ,I took top part off and had to snap panels back in place but still had some rattles afterwards and decided to just deal with it. The other day, took top part off again and noticed a couple spots wouldn’t snap in place anymore and put a dab of glue in those spots and added some small rubber sticky pads in between the panels before clamping them together. Also,the bolts on each side of the top vent had a lot of play in them shaking back and forth. I took the e-clip off the edge of bolt and added a washer on both sides of the vent to minimize the play with almost no movement at all. When test riding it afterwards,was happy with results and bike never felt tighter. Sometimes it takes small things to make a ride more pleasurable lol
