Question 2015 V1000 LT Owners - I have a two questions

1. Is the black seat cover “skin tight” on your passenger seat? (Mine kind of hovers above the foam)

And

2. Does your right hand guard buzz between 3000 and about 4800 RPM (Mine does really bad)


Just trying to figure out if these minor issues are normal.

Other than that the bike is awesome!

Same here .. There is some "give" in the cover before meeting the foam. The cover is taut though. No creasing when sat upon

And

Don't know yet, still waiting for fitment

Anyone have a cure for the right side hand guard buzz. Its coming from the handle weight. I think its from metal to metal contact. If I touch the weight while its buzzing it stops instantly.

I had this same issue with my '12 V with the kawasaki hand guards. I only fix I could find was removing them.

Make sure the O ring betwn the handle weight and the hand guard is there. (see pic)
