    Front Mudguard Extender

    The workshop manual informs us that the front mudguard is comprised of a front and rear section; and I infer from my reading that one has to remove the front section in order to remove the rear one so as to fit the extender.

    Now I admit to being a wrencher of reluctance and like to limit my efforts, for the more I do the more likely I am to lose a nut or scratch the paint! Thus I look for the 'best' way to do things. So here is the question:

    Is it essential to remove the front section in order to remove the rear one?

    YES !

    ( Section 17.44 of the Service Manual )

    The ( painted ) front section of the front mudguard
    sits partly on top of the rear ( unpainted ) section,
    and the front section screws also pass through holes
    in the unpainted section that sits below it.

    It's only 6 screws in total to remove both sections.  :028:

    The front mudguard consists of two parts;
    a painted front cover and an un-painted rear section.
     
    If removal of only the front cover is required,
    do not remove the two rear bolts and
    the rear section will remain in position.

    1. Remove the four fixings and withdraw the front mudguard cover
    forwards to remove it from the motorcycle.

    2. Remove the two rear fixings and carefully remove the mudguard
    rear section forwards to remove it from the motorcycle.

    Cheers  :821:

    Try using a magnetic parts tray or other container to place the nuts etc in. :002:

    You could spend time covering panels etc with cloth/masking tape, if you are likely to be scratching them.

    Duncan, your an intelligent being, you won't have a problem. As Earthman said, put all the bits in a tray/container, or lay on the garage floor in the order you removed them.  :158:

    Well, in my future I see an opportunity for me lower my lanky 6'4" frame on my aged and aching knees  :083: to do the necessary. Getting up again will be the worst. And of course I get to do it twice because it all has to be reinstalled.

    Thanks to all for their replies/advice.  :028:

    One of the many "pleasures" of getting older. :745: :745:

    Hopefully you have one of the benefits of older age,
    in having amassed loads of Cash, so why not invest
    in a Bike Lift / Ramp, to bring your Trophy up to a comfortable working level  :028:

    I didn't remove anything when I installed mine. I bought some 3M two sided body molding tape at the local auto parts store and cleaned both surfaces very well. I even used a bit of alcohol to make sure all the grease etc. was gone. 50,000 miles later everything is in place and as solid as new. I did have to get down on my aging knees to do this however.
