Bike pictured in my post below with powder coat wheels. I've owed 01 rubicon and the dash cover seemed solid, never gave it a thought. Same with 03 rincon. The foreman however has a gap to the screen and I can move the red cover side to side. I've popped it off and seems ok. 1 screw in the front plus the snaps. I've looked at the Honda scematic and it looks like everything is there. Seems like it needs a gasket to the meter or something. The only part of the bike that feels cheap.

OK< NO pic's here, NO yr of the atv you have
makes things a little harder for us to help you no?? LOL

if the vib's bother you enough, you can just get some clear silicone and seal it up to stop the chatter!
just an idea?

Sounds like you're missing some of the support bits in the pod.

The cover should be able to move around the meter, but there are dampeners in the housing that should keep the vibration down.

The pod innards changed from 05-06 and the 07-up. What year do you have?

Thanks, it looks just like the schematic with the heavy wire meter stay. The 07 bike has a bracket that holds the meter.

My meter is rock solid, the lower (black) cover is good, the top red cover seems loose when assembled

There are 3 flanges on the meter that look like they should have some rubber posts to push up on the cover against the clips and the one screw that hold it on.

The schematic of the meter shows the 3 extra flanges I'm talking about but doesn't show anything in there

I may just do that, thanks. I don't mind that it moves, but between idle and rolling with my itp589 tires it gets a vibration, then a rattle.
