    Fork Tunnel Wind Noise Fix?

    Tried searching….no joy.

    Is there a way to stop the wind noise (roar) at highway speeds which seems to be coming up through the fork tunnel?  Seems worse with cross winds.  Trying to keep what I have left of my hearing.

    I found posts discussing a DIY solution but can’t find the fix.

    Thanks in advance!

    Are you sure it is coming from there! Maybe it is coming from side!  I have side deflectors and i do not feel i have same issue?

    I know exactly what you are talking about. Been enduring it. Have you found a solution yet?

    Hound,

    Thank you for the template.  Could you post it publicly or pm it to the other guy asking for it above. I have tried to attach it to a pm and am having no luck.

    Here is the link to my Google Drive for anyone else who wants it:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mo3LZiUb4DhZqElbN7R05gAURAPNZFk7/view?usp=sharing

    I've noticed that a great many links and photos that could be useful in older threads are suddenly "not available". Glad I grabbed this in time.

    Thanks for the template.

    Any idea what the wordings say? Suggestions on material to use?

    Does it sit on the frame, anchored to the bolts that hold the tank?

    I had the same questions.  Still do.  Plastic or aluminum I would guess?  Looks like the line across the center may designate a 90 degree bend but not sure.

    I know there is an aftermarket item the Goldwing guys use called a “tunnel filler” made out of a pliable sponge like material that fills the void on the older wings.

    If anybody has any more info about how to make or use the above template and the results, it would be appreciated.  Also, a translation of the words on the sheet.
