Sound proofing GS
Caveat from the get go. It didn’t work but call me anal, I had to try. Seeing a lot of cars sound proofing engine bonnets with the stick on sound dampening sheets, I thought I’d apply it to all the plastic on the front end of my 1250gs to try to muffle some on the noise that my now sensitive ears continue to struggle with, even with ear plugs.
Heated with a hair drier the sheets mold very nicely, but add little bit of weight. Some pics attached. The sound pitch appear to change slightly, but if anything it’s sounds louder. Maybe it better funnels the noise up through the steering well. Actually I rode it without all the plastic, beak etc for a couple weeks, and looks aside that sounded quieter. The search continues.
