Thread: Hood tie down?

  1. #1

    Hood tie down?

    Anyone use anything to hold their hood down from vibrating a lot at high speeds or rough waters? I seen something on here but haven't lately. Where to attach something that can be unhooked to still use the storage. Was thinking like spider web looking soft something that stretches but they may already make it?

    My pair of FX HOs are just about a year old. I've had them in some pretty rough conditions--such as Miami to Bimini and also White Lake in Louisiana. There has never been any indication that the hood might accidentally open.

    Nah mine won't open either, I just hate the looks and sound of the vibration. I want to pin it down but not make it look sh*tty.

    My gpr hood vibrates at idle speed. does bother me a bit but as soon as i give it some gas the ride gets smoother and the vibration stops.

    I have not found any shaking whether visually or audibly.
