Question front fairing removal. help

how do you remove the front fairing as a unit?
i have the air scoops out, the mirrors loose, some screws out, and it still seems like it is connected under the quage cluster, is there a bolt back there holding it all together? any help is appreciated!!!! thanks.

Re: front fairing removal. help

You should be able to remove the whole front unit but sometimes it can take a little wiggling and pulling to get it off. There's nothing connected under the cluster. Just make sure you take out all the screws and try again.

Re: front fairing removal. help

you need to take the mirrors all the way off and take all the screws out. if you look at the headlight there are I think 4 rubber grommets that are on the headlight. The upper fairing has plastic things on it. they look like screws but they are not. there are a couple of ways to get it off. I got one of them loose and once I got one the rest of them were easy. I know this might not make any sense but I don't know what everything is called. hope this helps.
