Great post.
I'd really like to see one with the same play by play with the nose and tail

OK somewhere someone was talking about a way to get 1/4 DZUS type fasteners to replace the 5mm hex key bodywork screws... anyone have a link to info on that? Can't find it in search...

Anyone replace the Phillips Head too? What did you use. Those are a PITA and caused me to scratch the underside of the front fairing.

Directions worked great, thx.

Make sure to hook lights back up... don't remember seeing this mentioned.

Also, it helps alot to keep all screws/bolts loose until you have them all in and then tighten them all at the end.

thanks for this.. I took mine off saturday night to spray ACF 50 all over everything I couldn't get to previously due to the farings..

My comments:
- plastic fasteners suck arse.. Realised that you want to unscrew 'em with absolutely minimal force.. otherwise they click back up and sit there spinning..
- the triangular bottom bit: what a complete and utter pain in the arse.. Will save my dying wish that the person who decided the faring/plastic bit/other faring sandwich of bottom clips order as well as the two toggle bits of the plastic thing need to go in.. Well, it took me ages to get all that clipped in nicely. Grrr..

Has anyone replaced the plastic clip bits with anything? I suspect they're going to last about 3 or 4 cycles of taking the faring off and I'd rather be using something a bit less fiddly.. They're great for putting back in though.. :D

Also: how's this for bad luck? I had waited for my crash bungs to turn up, but then they'd shown no signs of being shipped.. So I take the bike apart (for some insane reason I started at near midnight). Do a clean, chain lube, spray everything with ACF 50 etc..). Put farings on, polish bike etc.. Put everything away, leave the key in the ignition cos I was so out of it by 4:30-5am or whenever i finished faffing around..
Then, lo and behold: next morning I walk down to see a box with my name on it that has been delivered. It's the crash protection..

So queue having to do the whole thing again next weekend.. GRRRR!

Awesome instructions! Popped the plastics off to do my first oil change.

One thing I would add to them (for stupid people like me): The "A" screws have two parts. Just getting the screw out doesn't mean the two faring pieces aren't still connected by the screw's seating. (I spent about 5 minutes going "WTF isn't my faring coming off the bottom of the support triangle?!" :roll: )

Has anyone found a fastener to replace the ones at the back bottom of the faring (labeled "B" here, I think). They are just evil...

Thanks again for the instructions though. You da man!
