    SHO mirrors shaking.

    What are you guys doing to fix this?

    I've been looking for some sort of heavy foam/rubber to glue in there under the hood. I don't think it'll keep them from shaking, but hopefully it'll keep it from rattling and banging so much.

    I put some self adhesive foam rubber furniture pads under mine and it helped a lot. Got them at Wally World.

    I've noticed this with my SHO too, I like my '05 HO hood much better. It makes the ski seem shoddy.

    Sorry to say...my biggest complaint about these skis..and are your hoods not lined up evenly on each side? Mine and my wifes skis have the right side of the hood with a bigger gap. The actual mirror assembly is very squishable and flimsy...this doesn't help stabilize at all! Yamaha needs to do something about this but they won't if we don't take them to the dealers and have it noted!

    Im going to take mine to the dealer and complain before I fix it myself. I want it noted. I was thinking some kind of thicker pad and a slip on latch not dissimilar to this.



    Or a slightly exposed catch that you would use an elastic band to loop around a second catch, and hook back to the fist one. That would work good but you would have to remove it every time you wanted in the hood. The latch like I pictured above could be bent so that it hoks easly and pulls the hood tighter to the bod as the trunk fully closes.
