Rubber strip around keyguard

The rubber around my keyguard piece is continuously coming loose. Anyone else have this problem? I have tried elmer's glue, gorilla glue, and now am trying silicone - all carefully applied, but every time I get up to speed it seems that it is flapping in the wind again. Very annoying when we pull up after some twisties and the other guys in the group make cracks about Italian build quality! I will show ProItalia at my next service, but wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

Interesting ... haven't had this happen. Goes to show you that every Italian bike is unique and has a personality of its own.

Not heard of this prob before... did you replace plastic with carbon...maybe the carbon one is thinnner and therefore rubber looser?

Try rubber cement. Place on both surfaces and let it get a bit tacky then stick them together holding it tight until dry.

I had this issue on my 750 Brutale - constantly fixing it. But no problems yet on my 910R. Maybe you could buy another one....avoid glue if possible?

The ends on mine slip out often. Has anyone swapped to the c/f piece that does not do this? If so which brand?

I pulled my off the original piece when I replaced it with carbon from e-Moto. Unfortunately, I tore it a little, but they told me standard seal adhesive from the hardware store would work. They also are trying to get replacement seals for the carbon piece.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I am going to try rubber cement next, then replacing with a carbon fiber piece. (Nice to have an excuse to do so!)

Go to a RC cars shop and try some tire glue... That's what I did...
