Unhappy Annoying BUZZZZZING sound....

Hi there

Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same buzzing sound I am getting.

It all started one day when my battery died. I ordered a new battery and went to install it. What should of been a 10 minute job turned into 1-2 hours as when I put the battery into its position one of the little nuts underneath the terminals fell out and when into a little crevice underneath the fuel tank.

What I ended up doing is taking the fuel tank cover off (which involved taking some covers at the front off which is a mission in itself) then un-bolting the fuel tank itself and lifting it. I retreived the nut fine and re-assembled the bike. All is fine.

Now at 5000 revs there is a buzzing or a vibration noise oringinating from the tank cover. When ever I put my hand on the cover the noise stops which tells me it might be coming from there.

Have any of you guy/gals ever struck this and any idea how I go about fixing it. I am %99.9 sure I tightened all the bolts.

Thanks in advance

I found the problem. Turns out I had installed the side covers wrong (the triangle shaped ones by the battery). The wrong way also appears to fit fine. Next time I have it apart I will crank up the digital camera and post some photo's of how not to do it.

huh? You might want to pay someone to work on your bike if you have trouble with the ram-air covers and putting the black accent panels back on the right side. They dont line up with the pop-in fasteners at all if you put them reversed. That or buy a service manual.

If you notice that the sound isnt fixed completely, its probably the tank cover. After the first time it is removed, it doesnt sit the same against the tank, and can vibrate against it. It usually does this around 5k rpm too (like you described) Some dynamat sound damping material under the tank cover fixes this problem right up.

Hey give me a break I am not that dense, They are on the correct side but the top of the covers have a decent size hole. This hole is normally placed on top of the back bolts of the tank cover, I had it underneath the back of the tank cover. It is quite hard to explain but it is easy to do and it still fits snugly. I will post some pics at some point. I do have a workshop manual and found a pic of the correct way. I changed them and the noise went away completely.

Thanks for your response.

had the same problem on a brand new 05 right off the floor. No miles at all hardley and buzzing under the tank cover. I took it off and stuck a little pice of rubber on the middle of the inside and put it back on. No more problems.

Thats a good idea, mine is not buzzing at the moment but I might do that next time I have the tank off.

Mine had the same problem, it should be fixed now that I did the same Mod thanks to "TOE". I wont know if its not buzzing or not until I take out of winter storage this spring but I dont forsee anymore buzzing issues.
