plastics & tank removal
on: August 11, 2013, 09:19:23 AM
Hi all, I feel the need to go poking around under the skin of the bike to acquaint myself.

Does anyone have any tips or shortcuts, can the coloured & gunmetal side plastics be removed as one?
Can the tank be removed by flexing the plastics apart?

Any tips & advice greatly received before I go breaking things :/

Cheers, Phil

i got these instructions with the heated grips......even so it took me ages to figure it out :183:
the light grey panels are held on with velcro and one press clip
i still cant get the right hand one off :192:
there are 2 screws inside at the top near the handlebars on both sides and these would not screw out so i used a pick point to draw out the centre before they would come out
i havent taken the tank off yet

had 4 pages but too big :012:

hope some of this helps phil

GTB is your man for advice, he pulls the plastics apart for fun!! Then he paints them or puts carbon fibre all over them  :020:

Thanks for the reply, I managed to get the plastics & tank removed ok, once you know where all the little plastic clips & screws are & how it all comes apart it is quite easy.

Worst thing I find is removing the fuel connector on the bottom of the tank....
