Buzzy Gauges

Well, I have been abusing my front end quite a bit with coming down pretty hard. Now my gauges (which have always buzzed a little) buzz a lot more. The speedometer needle used to vibrate between 80-85 and kinda bounce around, but now I hear buzzing almost always in there. It's REALLY annoying.

Anyone else had this happen? I think I'm going to take everything apart and see if something's broken or loose.

Are you sure it is not the classic 919 Headlight ring buzz?

Is there a cure for the headlight buzz?

Yep, put some eletrical tape on the plastic area where the chrome ring sits.

I grabbed the headlight ring while I was riding and it appears to be the noise maker. I'll fix her tomorrow after class and see if that really is the culprit.

Anyone here suffer from a buzz in the front end... I can't really tell where it's coming from.

For me, it seems prominent at... ~2800RPM.
