2006 Side Fairing Removal...Help
Ok, I decided to try and get at my spark plugs to see how bad the fairing removal would go. That was my first mistake. My second mistake was in actually getting the fairing off.
I took off the mirror, lower windshield, radio cover, and crashbar. Then I noticed that my Clymer 1998-2005 LT repair guide's pics looked different than my bike. I had thought that the 2005 and 2006 were the same, but either they aren't or the Clymer is wrong. Either way, I found all the screws attaching the lower fairing, and managed to wiggle the fairing off.
While looking around, I decided not to go further, as I didn't have adequate resources to make sure I did everything right, being that the Clymer was untrustworthy. I then tried to line up the screw holes for the lower fairing. Wow, this is unsettling, none of the holes will line up at the same time.
After about an hour of playing around, cajoling, and cursing, I've admitted to...a temporary setback. I'm now inside cooling down, and searched previous posts and the HoW, but didn't come across the right answer. Actually, my girlfriend told me to go inside and cool down, as she could hear me cursing and glancing at the deadblow hammer.
So...advice, help, and especially pictures would be incredibly appreciated.
