Unfortunately my 2017 RM windshield motor now has a pretty severe grinding noise when lowering the shield. It sounds like the teeth are skipping on the spiral gear. I am pretty sure the 2018 had a new mechanism which supposedly eliminated the rattle from the windshield on the earlier models.
It would be nice to fix it with a non rattling mechanism. 22,000 on the odometer.

I have a 19 RM, and the windshield rattles. Not severely enough to hear over my music though.

The mechanism looks different though, so I'm not sure if that would work for your fix...

I remember when the new mechanism came out and a guy asked his dealer if he could pay for the new unit. If I remember correctly, he was told the new units were not compatible with the older bikes.

There is a guy here who sells a kit that fixes the rattle. If you search for windshield rattle, his thread will pop up. It isn’t expensive and works and he has excellent instructions.
