    Sure I do Mate. The vibration in front has the same effect on me. None of the plastics around the dome are loose yet the vibration persists.
    I wanted to open up the headlamp area yesterday at service but my Mech believes more in the 'If it ain't broke...' philosophy I guess!

    Speaking of service, how often do you v1 guys replace the rear suspension link holder plates?
    I'm getting them changed approximately once in every alternate year when I find the rear is sagging and looks short.

    Im trying to source front and rear tyres for my bike and it seems almost impossible to get the stock ones. Can anyone help me with options closest to the stock ones or if possible leads to where i can get the tyres from.

    Is yours the 100/80 17 section tire? Or the new 130/70?

    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    A small rubber or hard foam like thing between the front windshield and the speedometer top plastic cover in two touching sides is missing or gone flat. Install a rubber tube cut or a similar thick foam (2-3mm) with a feviquik or any god quality adhesive (Loctite 401 or 406) in the between the space. It will reduce the buzz from the front part. The idea actually came into me when I hold the windshield and pulled it towards me it stopped vibration. Try it.

    100/80 Rear is hard to find. Try 110/80 from Ceat & 80/90 is available as MRF Masseter.

    saikat was pretty much spot on. The irritating frequency vibe that one hears from the front side of the console almost stops when one touches the visor or slightly flexing it towards himself, the noise completely stops. The small gaps around the visor where the plastic flap of the console meter and the front number plate mounts meet. It's from this spot that the buzzing sound comes. I used double sided tape, black preferably, (I used white) cut it in small sizes (which should actually fit your index finger tip), and use broomstick stick to slowly wedge in between the console plastic and the visor, slowly and steadily. It should solve the irritating buzz that one experiences, at least mind came down 85 to 90%, the rest I don't even hear with the helmet on.

    The headlight assembly and everything is perfectly fine, don't fiddle with it. Everything will be tight and torqued well, but still this sound comes only because of this minuscule panel gap

    Cheers!

    I've recently changed tyres after lot of scouting for stock options. MRF Zapper S 100/80 is no longer available and I went for Pirelli Angel CT (CiTy) from www.tyremarket.com
    For the front, MRF Masseter FX 80/90 is available but not in all cities. It wasn't available in Hyderabad or even Bengaluru so I booked one off the MRF website with my location as Pune. A friend's brother who was traveling brought it for me.

    Thanks for the inputs guys. Much appreciated. The rubbers are still in place and I've even replaced the dome nuts, costly as they are.
    The sound I'm hearing is not from the dome area but on the left side near the tank.
    Yet to figure it out. I think it's a side effect of the 3 crashes. Headlamps, fairings all were replaced but something is not fit right.

    Rubber Grommets below the Black Plastic Console Panel may be missing.

    Thanks for the prompt response!
    The grommets are in place but maybe the rubber has hardened so I wil try replacing them.

    If those grommets are hardened, just apply a dab of grease or oil and install them back. If you find the sound is quietened, then we've found the culprit, if it isn't, then it's definitely coming from somewhere else. Keep us posted, Sarvajit.
