    I have a ST Heritage that has tht chrome dome on the front rim. Its loose, with a lot of slop. Its causing some noise going down the road. Can I cut the thing off with tin snips or do I have to disassemble the front end and replace it with a spacer?

    I would pull the wheel. I believe there is a plate that bolts to the hub that it mounts to.

    Tat,
    I have that on my 08, went out in the shop and checked it, it spins free from the wheel/rim. Not sure if that is correct but cant say i have heard any noise coming from it.

    Hobbit,
    Rust on it already? Must be the nasty stuff they put on the roads for the snow?

    mine will spin by its self for a while and lots of slop. Ive seen where some have removed theirs. What happens is when I get ver 45 MPH, it starts to flop around and send a vibration and harmonic noise that i can hear. everything else is tight. No Bearing play. I think Ill take it in to the shop. Just in case.
