Does your Intruder gas cap ""Rattle"" or "Buzz" have a look @ []Kjelle's Page[/url]

I had that same rattle on my 2002 1400..I devised a rubber gasket that fit over the tank opening that eventually solved the problem..

I just went to Ace Hardware and got an appropriate sized o-ring that fit over the gas cap lid and it stopped the buzz. Been working for a couple of years now. Think that was a recommendation from the purple board. ;IDunno:

Mine rattles, but between my helmet, music and exhaust, I don't hear it.
