There is an old thread on here somewhere which explains it better than I could. I'll see if I can find it but it is simple enough if you are careful with the plastic screws as they chew up easily.

My version: under the beak, remove the 4 black plastic screws by loosening them (really light-handed here, they unscrew easily and are easily butchered with too much force) a few turns then use the still-embedded screw to pull out the remaining part of the retainer. Then pull out the base of the beak (this can require a bit of force). On the side of the bike you wish to remove the fairing from, there is a horizontally-mounted black plastic screw which needs to be removed next - you've just uncovered it by removing the lower part of the beak. Then, down the inside of the fairing alongside the front of the engine, are some black push-pin fairing fasteners. If you look at the centre of one of them, there is a little pin sitting flush - you need a small pointed tool to push the centre of the pin in, which should then pop out as little, then get a fingernail under the rest of the fastener and remove. There are 3 of these for the lower, triangular fairing, and I think another 3 for the top fairing. Lastly, there are 2 allen screws, one next to the tank on top of the side fairing and one inside the vent behind/below the Honda badge on the side fairing.

Once they are all out, you pull back the side fairing to release it from its fastenings. There is a retaining bit that holds onto the silver frame alongside the engine which needs to be lifted clear too. The side fairing should now be free.

Refitting is the reverse - be careful screwing the 4 black retaining screws under the beak, you need MINIMAL effort to screw them in!

It's easy enough once you've done it once, but yr always welcome to ride down to me and I'll show you how - 5mins off J10 of the A1.

Good luck.
