    Love the bike buts whats with all the plastic vibration sounds?

    Like I say, love it, but when you get to accelerating there is all this plastic vibration noise coming from under/around the tank.  I wish I knew if everyone has this happening, and what can be done about it.  Its annoying. For example is there room between the tank and the airbox to say add some of that foil lined stick on insulation to deaden the sound and maybe stop the vibration?

    I've never noticed that to be honest
    Bikes are like women.  What you want and what you think you want change after the first ride.

    No noise on mine.

    Have you inspected under the tank to see if anything is loose?

    Its a non DCT. Yes I had the tank off and reinstalled and had the airbox cover off to install the KandN filter.  Didnt notice anything amiss.

    5 Speed, have you had to chance to ride another vfr1200x to see if you notice this on another bike?
