At about 40mph, my glovebox door starts to rattle. Has anyone else had this problem, and what did you do about it? I have an idea or two, but I'll wait to see if cooler heads prevail.

Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! Me! ...until last week, that is.

Stephen (Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.) suggested placing a piece of rubber tubing between the glove box and its door. It's working like a charm.

That buzz drove me nuts. Good luck.

The top corners of the door itself. Or just duct tape it shut...

Yes but it'll probably cause an airleak. Jeremy what ever you do stay away from stellaspeed!

I don't know about glove boxes but change your spark plug every 100 miles and your scooter will be super fast.

"Real" tuners know that the best and most efficient way to gain MPH is...
speed holes.

p.s-stella looks kinda cool w/o the glove box, but it's harder to conceal my handgun.

I just cut off the legshield and floorboards, removed the cowls and put a Cosa seat and foot pegs on. It totally flies now.

Do you think a 24/24 carb would help, or should I go 25/25 because it's one more than 24/24?

I bent the small "C" clip holding the latch mechanism on the door. My latch was what was rattling.

Sure, take the easy way out. Where's the fun in that? ;)

I realize that this is totally different technology, but on the vintage P-series bike that I ride, I cut up a shop rag and stuffed it between the door and the frame. After a week it kind of molded itself there and it's stuck there for good. Of course, my P will never win any beauty contests.

moses, that is perfect.
next step is to ditch that archaic cabeurator and get some fuel injection.
and unless you can actuate the front wheel, i'd say ditch that too.
p.s Corsa?!? try carbon fiber!!!
