2005 Bullet rear Taillight
« on: December 02, 2013, 02:12:54 AM »
I just purchased the first RE a 2005 Bullet 500 , the rear headlight assembly is missing the rubber strip and its rattling and making allot of noise. Anyone know where i can source the strip or something like it. I was thinking of maybe a rubber door guard for a car door ..... thanks in advance and i look forward to the forum .Very excited about the new purchase.

A car door bump strip will work.  That's what I used on the lids of my ammo can panneirs to cure the rattle.

I had very good luck replacing the whole assembly with this item:

If you have a few extra bucks, I highly recommend it.

Milk thanks for the link ... but it still doesn't solve the problem of the metel rattling against my fender from the taillight assembly.

Oh! I'm silly.....yeah. The whole assembly. Like Brother D said....car door bumper strip should work fine.
