Fender strut cover creaks after sissy bar install
I installed the Kawasaki back rest and luggage rack on my 900 custom the other day. It was a real pain to install but I finally got it. Anyway, it looks great but when I sit on the bike I hear a squeek/rubbing. I figured out it's the chrome plastic fender strut covers. The front seat pushes a bit on the cover tips which causes them to rub against the black metal bars they are covering underneath and make a squeeking/rubbing sound.
What does that mean and what can I do to stop it? It didn't do it before I took the strut covers off to put the back rest on. I can't figure out how I have it placed wrong, since I assume that if I can get the two screws in with no resistance it's in the right place. Just not sure. I trying relieving some torque in the strut cover screws, but to no avail.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
