Fit a front wheel without any smileys and the cluster will be vibration free   :thumleft:

That bracket mounts to the frame around the cluster. A friend had one on his bike. We fitted a sponge between the bracket and the cluster to stop it from vibrating.

Vibrating cluster/headlight is due to a damaged grommet under the headlight.  Replace the grommet, no more vibration.

Morning.

I gave the "original " to a mate of mine to copy when he had time, and one of his staff chucked it in the scrap bin.... :dousing: When I asked for an update, the template was missing.... :-[

Anyone maybe know of someone that might have this in a drawing/cad/benderthing file that might want to share this with us.

What is the small plug on the right hand side?

Seems this thread died a sudden death.

I have a plate on my bike, not quite like the one shown here though, much simpler and made from plastic of some sorts. It is held in position by the instrument cluster and slides in under the brackets on the sides.

Did some TLC on the bike over the weekend and showing before and after picks.

I did trace a template if interested.
