Default New 675 Owner Fairing Removal Question

After looking close at the big 4 600's, I settled on the 675 2 weeks ago. I've searched for step by step instructions on the left side fairing removal to change oil. Can't seem to find. How difficult is it to remove and replace? It looks like I could change the oil without removing the fairing, but could get a little messy. I'm average in the mechanical skills department. I do pretty well with good directions. Thanks for any help!

You "can" do an oil change without removing the fairings, but I would suggest getting some plastic sheeting that you can get for free from Home Depot and Lowes. You'll want to tape the plastic to the sides of the fairings on the inside to prevent it splashing and what not. You might need a plastic guide for the oil filter...or some rags since some oil will spill out even after you take out the filter carefully.

I know because when I took my bike for its first oil change to the shop, that's exactly how they did it. I just dont do it because all the times Ive needed to do oil changes it was in track plastics and all I need to do is take off the lower fairings that are attached using DZUS fasteners.

hmm. there is 2 fairing removal procedure. 1 has missing pictures. i dont remember which one. you need to go in the FAQ section of mods or FAQ section of maintenance and repair forum. one of those will have the detailed how to take off your fairing. Very easy to do.. but you need to learn how to do it anyway.. it gets easier as you keep doing it. First time will always be hard.

Even without a detailed "how-to" it's pretty simple/logical. And no tools needed other than the Allen key provided. The only bear is those bottom clips.
I had mine off to do blingy stuff in the first week, before I discovered the how-to on this board. I was paranoid about scratching them so I laid out a LOT of old blankets around the bike first. Oh and it's easier with a race-stand, but still not impossible without.

Thanks so much. I'm new to the 675 and this forum. FAQ's under "maintenance and repair" gave a great pictured description. Not sure if my 09 may be a little different, but probably the same or very similar. I frequently go on the Kawi ZX and BMW K1300S forum and this one has the best layout to find information and has the most activity. I sure hope I have good luck with the bike.

Yeah Kman I was a little worried the first time I took mine off to and now its no big deal, just get in there and do it I am sure it will be the same for you. I never take them off to change the oil. It is a little messy but wayyyyyy faster.

When I first got mine and was looking at frame-sliders, the main Triumph dealership service manager quoted me FOUR HOURS' labour to fit them. I just gaped at him in astonishment, and he said, don't you realise, the fairings have to come off ....
