Question about 2005 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit
The 2 bolts on top connecting it to the tank are tight but there's play and it rattles/buzzes like crazy when the RPM's are high.
Just had this happen to mine. the cheap plastic that fits over the bracket broke and the bracket slipped out. repositioned and problem solved for now. not sure how long it will stay in so I'm looking for a new housing

Hi m8,, remove the 2 bolts and put 1 or to washers on the bolt and put back on the tank,,if still no joy, then take off the housing and just smear a bit of silicone to the bottom of the housing ,then replace back on tank, bolts back in and tighten,,give it half an hour or so 4 silicone to set,,,,,cheers

Remove the speedo housing and see if the tank still has the rubber piece (honda part number 17511-KGB-610) installed on the top bracket where the speedo would mount. sometimes this piece is lost when reassembling. you can order one from honda (should be less than $10), but i usually wrap this bracket with a rubber type of tape in the mean time.
also, check to make sure the two fasteners have the collars (screw fits through this and goes in the speedo screw hole) and the rubber washer (between the screw and the speedo). without one or the other, it could buzz at speed.
