I had all the covers off my scooter for the past 2 days looking to see if a person could design a easy install trailer hitch for the SWing and noted how much the covers rattled. They where just plan loose when installed and made alot noise.

I had some open foam tape 3/4" x 1/2". Very light weight stuff and cut the foam length wise with a pair of scissors. It only took 14 3/4" of foam to do both access covers.

Now some pictures:

This works great. Seals the covers and gets rid of that bad rattle.

Great idea ... I wonder how many rattles that people reported could be attributed to this??

Looks good!

I'm watching 'this space' now for developments on the scooter hitch. Smile

Went for a short ride today and what a change. No more noise coming from the back of the scooter. Well worth the time and effort.

Nice mod DennisB.

May well follow suit and also maybe add a little to the non locking front compartment.

I hate rattles of any kind. Take your mind off the road trying to identify the source.

Dennis,

I don't recall seeing this post but I've been pretty fortunate so far. I think I only have 1 rattle at different times. But I had a Majesty once where the rear cover used to rattle and it did drive me nuts. I did something to stop it but can't remember. But that is a great idea with the foam. Thanks.

HA! Thats where that damned rattle was coming from! Just did it. Tested it, and that fixed it! Thank you! This thing is sounding less, and less like a tupperware bowl full of lego's everyday!

I could see through to the ground between the plastics when looking through the access holes, so i taped across them as well. Between that and the rattle door fix, im sure the box will be a cleaner place to be!

THANK YOU!

I tried this fix a couple of days ago.  I found some 3/8" x 1/2" foam weatherseal at my local Home Depot.  It was the perfect size, and only took a few minutes to apply.  Quick, cheap and easy! Smile

Hint: thoroughly was the panels with dish soap and water and dry completely before attempting to apply the foam strips.
