    Hi, if anyone achieves this without any damage ;) could they take pics then it could be made a sticky' please?
    I know it's in owners handbook, but it's not very clear (to me anyway).
    It looks like there's a fair bit of 'grip n rip' involved!???? :183:
    Thanks yann (ideally I would like a service manual, but I can't see it happening) :003:

    Hi Yann

    Can't run to pics I'm afraid, not got the technology here. Just had mine off to sort Scottoiler problems and it is fairly straightforward as long as you go in the order given in the riders manual. The most difficult bit is replacement, especially the two below the handlebars. I had to separate the clips and insert them as two elements. It worked though.
    It might help to have a few replacements of each clip available just in case.
    Hope this helps and good luck.

    Agree with john. It's one of those jobs that the more you look at it, push and pull and study the awful diagram  - all will become apparent!
    The industrial grade Velcro pads give the impression you might snap something but in fairness there doesn't appear to be any hidden lugs.
    As previous post, a couple of spare clips could be useful.
    Let us know how you get on.

    thanks guys, I'm not in a big hurry, I've removed the bottom black ones for cleaning/fettling, but the rest will come off (with a tank raise) when I fit the digi gear indicator.
    cheers yann
