Re: Anyone notice a rattle after Scotts damper install?
Before they modified the mounting bracket, yes. You may have one of the earlier mounting kits. Check the very front tab of your gas tank. It may be coming into contact with the Scotts mounting bracket. Scotts slightly revised the bracket design after people complained. Don't worry, it is easy to fix it yourself.
Normally, the gas tank is isolated from vibration by rubber mounting points. If the tank is hitting the bracket, it can rattle and amplify the noises from the motor. If the bracket is close or is hitting the tab, you can fix it. Remove the damper and the bracket piece that goes over the gas tank bolts. Use a file to add some clearance right where it contacts the tank tab. A small notch is enough, and it won't hurt the strength of the mount. My Scotts mount had the same problem on my 929, and this fixed it right up.
