Fairing removal
« on: April 12, 2013, 01:34:37 PM »
I am not sure whether this has been covered before but does anyone know how to remove the fairing?

I am thinking of fitting a better horn and would wish to place it under the fairing.

Has anyone removed theirs yet?

Yes I have removed the left hand fairing. You need to remove that grey piece which goes over the tank first it has four fasteners two at the front and two at the back. Then there is a piece of plastic near where your shin would be if you were riding it, that just pulls off. All the fairing fasteners should now be visible there are quite a lot of them but just work your way round.
Might as well as wish we had.

Thanks David. Are there any of those stupid poppers that cars have that snap when you remove the door linings? or are they well make connectors.

They are all proper screws, you just need the Allen Key from the tool roll under the seat.

Thanks. That is great news. A far better way of securing the fairing rather than those stupis plastic clips that break everytime you remove the fairing.

I used to have to buy several for the Honda each time I wanted to remove any par tof mine.

There are two Phillips screws under the fairing bottom near the radiator  bottom. Remove these two little screws first before trying to remove the plastic thingies.

There should be no issues removing and putting back the fairing. The most difficult part is remembering where all the screws go and not having any left over.

You probably wouldn't want to do it the way I mounted mine (on the crash bars where they can be seen) so you might want to see here for what one other forum member did.
