how to disassemble the 2010 panel?

Good morning everyone

Finally found my buzzing source, itīs the instruments panel rubbing on something. So I have a few pieces of anti skid rubber to insert. How to properly disassemble the 2010 panel, is it just the pressure screws in front and on the side, or should I also remove the optics (or something else)?

thks in advance

Not sure how different the 2010 is from the previous model years. Try this:

I noticed the same thing on mine (2010 also). I actually thought it was the windshield, and since I ordered a tall Givi windshield, I did not look into it yet. (still waiting for the delivery after 1 month...).

Anyway, I'll try a shim as well to see if it solves the problem (seems to be worse at around 6K rpm).

A couple of days ago I was told that the 2010 V Givi windshields are still stuck in customs

yes its a bummer. same thing happens to me if I order something a little bit larger or weightier from the US.. unfortunately no commercial agreement between US and the EU, in the global world we live in its kinda stupid, but on the other hand every government does favor to the chinese businesses.. weīre doomed lolol

I do have the GIVI. Maybe the strain in the mounts causes a higher level of buzzes. this weekend iīll look into it.

So I do have to disassemble the optics, correct? I was hoping not..
