I like others have been the victim of the loose battery covers.

After replacing the grommets with new ones I still had a loose cover every so often, and the thing would pick the darnedest times coming loose.

What I tried and has worked so far is coating the tabs with 3 coats of liquid tape. let the stuff dry good between each coat be fore applying another.

Has worked for me, I liked the other ideals thrown out here by others but I was in the garage one day and saw my can of liquid tape sitting there and gave it a shot :)

Hope this helps someone out there!

Ride Safe, Ray

how hard/easy is it now to intentionally remove the cover?

btw good idea
Roger, it now is firm to snug feeling and haven't have a problem with coming loose.

anther problem I had was I routed some wiring under the cover which didn't allow the cover to seat properly in the grommets:baffled:so lesson learned on that too.

well back to the garage got 1 more bolt to finish taking off to drop the exhaust:cool:

I've done similar on a worn side cover by giving the pegs a couple of coats of ABS cement on the tip ends of the pegs.
