When I drive over 75 mph, the left side carburator cover pops out. I changed all the grommets, and even lenghtened the tab to avoid this. The problems seems to come from the piece that goes into the grommet, closer to my calf. I also noticed that the tabs are not long enough to go all the way into the gromet slot.

please help

What about the frame tabs that the grommets go into, are they bent back or damaged?

If you check out the profile of Rudy, he has keeper kits that stop the covers getting lost.

Post a pic of your tabs. Are they whole?
Did you buy new, Honda grommets? Aftermarket or used (fleebay)may be the problem.
