    I cut strips from the soft fuzzy side of self-adhesive Velcro and totally lined the vent door frames.

    Now I can ride with vents fully closed with ZERO WHISTLE NOISE.

    Looks better than weather stripping. Let us know if it holds up. I'm wondering if the vents on the Chally will need the same fix.

    AHA! The first 19 model that I saw with the vents was on the showroom floor at Rob Gregorys in Little Rock. I told him I suspected that they might put up a whistling noise in the wind. He said you may be right we'll have to see. So I guess I WAS right. But since I'm always right I guess I shouldn't be marveling at myself.

    Yes, it is so hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way.

    Interesting, I have a '19 RM and never heard the lower vents whistle while closed. If I do I guess I'll know a fix in the future
