My question is how easy/difficult is this to install, and is it a D I Y job? I have the 12000 mile service coming up and if this involves a tear-down, I'll just have the dealer install it while they have everything off for that service. Otherwise, I've got a project to tackle.
That depends on your confidence is removing some tupperware. Both crash bars and both sides of the fairing need to come off so you can access the screws for the nose cone (don't forget the one under the vanity light). That's pretty much it!
It is more intimidating than difficult the very first time, really!
In fact, if you are going to do it yourself, why not get your hands dirty and perform the 12000 service yourself? Then the stingray and the fuel tank need to come off to give you access to the fuel and the air filters. The parts will set you back around $130.00 (air, oil, and fuel filters, oil, plugs, and a couple of hose clamps), plus you will rip the benefits of getting cozy with Mein Byk
. Your dealer will tell you exactly what you need for your 12000 service.
There will be enough folks on this site to assist you if you have questions (and you will). Do your research and print the material. Very useful!
An alternative would be to attend a local tech session... The benefits include food and beer, plus the collective knowledge of the attendees.
That sure beats the $600-800 charged by your dealer.
