RT Side Pocket Lid Fix
Fixing Loose and Rattling Lids
My RT has over 55,000 miles of use on it, and over time, the fairing side pocket lids no longer fit tight and rattle around when the bike is in motion. They have a rubber rope type gasket on the inside lip to provide some level of protection and stability, but the real problem is the extended wear on the lid “clips” and the pocket edge where the two meet. The clips cut into a slot into the pocket edge causing the lid to slide down towards the gas tank.
