Default JTD lowers

I discovered a buzzing noise while riding and found it to be my JTD lowers. The vibration at certain rpms causes the plastic in the upper outside corner to vibrate against the Forged bars.

Simple fix? I used black cork tape. A black rubbery self adhering insulation used in HVAC to insulate sweaty pipes. Just cut a desired length and roll it into a log tube about the with of sipping straw and apply to the area pushing and pressing into the inside of the lowers where they meet the top outside corner of the forged bars. Hold the JTD lowers against your bars on the outside while pressing the putty into the area.

Makes a great un noticeable seal and stopped the vibration. In time if the putty dries out which it wont or falls off you can always put another piece in.
