    2015+ Fairing Removal

    I've had a couple of new members ask me about removal of the plastics on the 2015+ model.

    There was a short guide on here a few years ago - does anyone know where it is and could link to it? We can then make it a thread of its own and a sticky so it's easy to find.

    Of course, if someone wants to make a new guide, with photos, I'm sure there will be a lot of very grateful members.  :028:

    . I spotted some footage on You Tube for the fairing panels . Worth a look.

    Video is for the Crosstourer, Pete, so the panel removal will be different.

    With my new quickshifter, there came a link to a site which you can download some accessory fitting guides for the 2015 and 2017 models and as part of the foglamp fitting guide is an illustration of how to remove the plastics which I thought might come in handy for some. Just remember that on Steps 6 and 8, the cowl comes off by sliding it forwards. Just take care throughout not to break any of the plastic tabs.

    Here is the link to the accessory fitting instructions: http://cssportal.css-club.net/honda/mca/start.asp?group=oth

    S'funny, I didn't get the link with my QS :021: I fitted it today. It's the first time I've taken off the sidepanels (well, one of them anyway). I'll be quicker next time. For me the most infuriating part of the whole process was re-fitting the sidepanel. The problem was the small rubber channel that fits on the bottom of the tank. It is supposed to fit into a larger channel on the bottom rear fixing of the sidepanel. The tank rubber channel is a loose fit on the tank, so when I refitted the side panel, sliding it forwards to engage the tabs, the channel kept falling off. In the end I found a piece of trim to go around the edge of a windscreen. This gripped the tank properly and made the job a lot easier. I also put a little Vaseline on each of the tabs as previous experience has shown that this makes the job a lot easier next time. Oddly enough I had no problem at all refitting the air intake channel.....
    Anyway, I went for a brief test ride to try the QS. Impressive! I reckon I'll still use the clutch for lower gear, bimbling about rides but use the QS when being a bit more spirited. Oddly enough gear changes using the clutch seem better than they used to be. This could be because the gear pedal is in a slightly different position but, whatever, it's a bit of a result all round and will save arthritic pain I occasionally get in my left hand on longer rides. :002:

    The link was on one of those annoying piles of paper that send to accompany everything these days.

    Of course I meant slide the cowl back to remove.

    Can a mod edit/remove the old post please?
