I know a few people who have had this problem. When trying to remove the panel at the throttle, you tear the material in the holes. I bought a new panel but want to try to do something to prevent this from happening again before installing.
Has anyone come up with some double washers that slip, a bearing, a stand off, or anything that works for better than just the factory screws for this?
I was hoping the new panel would have been made a little sturdier at the holes but it is not.
