Stack small o-rings onto your key so that it applies a little pressure when it is in the ignition and it cures the buzz on some 2nd gens.

That fix and one for a different buzz on 1st gens have been posted a lot and should be stickied.

You can also use a small pice of black vaccum line or other tubing and cut it to fit.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Sounds like your mufflers are too restrictive? Lol!
I have A&R's installed, never heard any buzzing....

'06, Smoked windscreen, Galfer S/S brake lines, GiPro TRE, Speedohealer, Custom lighted fender eliminater, A&R Baffles, "Real" Ohlins Damper, added a seat cowl, so now I'm a true 'poser'..... Power mods - Why? Too much for me already!

Some do it some don't- there was a problem with the antitheft bolts that hold the ignition to the tree on some 2nd gens. They weren't getting tightened enough before the antitheft part snapped off (for lack of better wording.)

That fix made some people's buzzing go away but others found the problem to be in the ignition switch itself and the o ring or rubber tube fix helps that.

Then on the 1st gens there was the space under the front fairing where they were rubbing and the fixes for that with felt or whatever.

took my 06 zx10r to the shop yesterday for that buzzing sound coming out of the ign. they drilled out the bolts and put some regular bolts on. that solved the problem. one way i noticed the ign was the problem was that it had some play in it. i checked out previous years and no movement at all. thanx for the info

My 08 will buzz sometimes too, I think it comes from the ignition area as well. Hmmm.. time to experiment.
