Those front plastic fasteners make you not want to do any work on the bike.

Woke up early on Sunday morning to do some work. An hour later and red in the face I had to stop before I simply ripped them out with force.

Tried, tightening, loosing, squeezing the plastic in every direction, applying pressure when turning, being as gentle as a fairy when turning, big screwdriver, little screwdriver, nothing.

They can be a bit of a pain. I recommend two things:


1) On your next parts order, pick up a whole set of them. Helps having new ones in there. They're cheap!


2) I use the screwdriver drill bit to get them out. Very small, so it's easy to use finesse to apply minimal pressure, yet still able to turn the screw.

Don't even use pressure, once it makes contact just twist. I also use the little bits.

Does anyone know where I can pick up some replacement metal brackets that attaches to the fairing tabs for the fairing screws to screw into?

I'm not even sure what the part is called...

Looking for confirmation that the two "B" fasteners affix the side fairings to one another under the bike in front of the rear wheel? For some reason my "B" fasteners are located in the "yellow #6" hole (second picture) where the inlay that keeps the fuses and other electrical components shielded attaches. Instead of having "A" and "B" fasteners (2 of each) under the bike I have all "A" fasteners (4) attaching the side fairings to one another under the bike.

Thanks!
