      yup.. known issue. search is your friend, but ill tell you what i did.

      The mounting tab on the underside of the tube?... used a dremel and elongated the hole so i cld get more adjustment out of it. i can sneak my index finger between the pipe and brake resv. now, no vibrations.

      another tip is to have the intake tab in front of , rather than behind, the metal tab it mounts to.
