Another annoying vibration noise - solved...
So, riding to work last week, I thought that the odd little buzzing vibration noise that I get sometimes from around the dash area had got suddenly a lot worse, and much more constant.
Started up for the ride home and instantly was greeted by a rattling buzz again - didn't stop when I put my hand on the dash. Wasn't long before I found the source - the left side mirror. The glass had become loose and was able to vibrate against the plastic bezel of the mirror body.
I've carefully applied some ultra clear epoxy right at the edges (where glass meets plastic) in a couple of places so it is now holding firm again, and buzz free. (used some masking tape on the glass and plastic so I didn't get epoxy where I didn't want it).
So, if you've got another annoying buzzing noise, check your mirrors!
