Buzz from guage cluster on 2010

Has anyone been able to resolve it yet? The front cowling is different from previous models, otherwise I would have followed the tons of info that is already on the forum. Photos if any will be very appreciated.

BTW, the buzz started after 800kms and after I played around with the windshield.

My 2010 has 2000 miles now. I only hear any dash buzz on decel at certain rpms.......and this is very rare. Each bike must have slightly different production standards?

@ nathanwiley, did you fool around with the windshield or the guage in general. I did and that's when the buzzing started.

I know there are a lot of threads on the issue with older models but haven't seen anythin substantial on 2010 yet. Especially in terms of a solution with picutres.

I've messed with the shield a lot (on and off) and even made some windshield brackets, but the buzzing doesn't seem to be affected by any of this. I would say when my bike was first being broken in the buzzing could be heard more often. Now that the engine has smoothed out considerably it is rare that I get any buzz.

My 2010 has 1700 miles and buzzes like crazy. It's making me crazy. I'm gonna tear it up soon to see what's causing it.

To be honest I'm not a big picture guy. My arrow exhaust just shipped out. My idea is the loud exhaust will dround out the buzzing. Let's see. Lol

No Buzz

2300 miles on my 2010 with no buzzing ever. Maybe just got lucky!

I get periodic buzzing, but rarely. Of course, with the useless windshield, the wind noise is so loud not sure I could hear the buzzing.
