Removing rear side luggage

How much work is there to remove the side luggage?
Is this one of those projects that is more involved than I think it is?
Do I need the manual to accomplish this?


Thanks
Jim

It's not too bad only four bolts per case. But first you need to remove the top case then the plate under the top case and the rear light and then the rear panel. Then both rear foot plates and both battery covers. Other than that it is not too bad.

I would recommend a manual. Hopefully you wanted to do this to facilitate some other project as you cannot put it back together with out the side cases.

And to answer the question why?

I want to do some work on it and cleaning..winter projects.
This is my reasoning.

That makes sense, I would get a bigger door. I guess I am lucky that I get to ride year round now that I have the Gerbings

Yeah, I like to be able to still move my head to look around. When it was 29 degrees at Iron Horse and I had all the clothes I had brought with me on, I was warm but I couldn't move!


I would rather turn a knob then add/remove layers.

Sounds to me like the perfect justification for building a nice heated garage.....
