Unhappy Bonnet won't shut

Just wound the boost up a fraction Mother Of God she shifts!!!

however ...

Bonnet won't fully shut u have to kinda drop it to shut it and it stays but as soon as u start driving the wind lifts it and it pops up to the secondary catch not sure how to adjust the spring catch so it'll latch properly
anyone got any ideas?

Re: Bonnet won't shut

Re: Bonnet won't shut

Re: Bonnet won't shut

Re: Bonnet won't shut

try getting an assistant to operate the bonnet release catch as you soak the catch in weasle piss (wd40) and check it operates smoothly and springs back fully, then if still not locking maybe adjust the locking pin and spring that locks into the catch on the bonnet, Ant!
