Re: fuel and temp gage read off scale
Well, the access to parts is indeed not easy, but that is what you pay for having a fully clothed luxury tourer.
One problem is that impatient/unskilled owners rip the bike apart and then put it haphazardly back together.
Since you write that you are not a novice when it comes to wrenching, you will figure out the system needed to service the machine. For example, the body fasteners: shortest are for single panel to metal threads, intermediate for two panels to clip nuts, longest for body panels to rubber well nuts.
Actually, my own system is to use little envelopes to hold and sort fasteners as I take the panels off. Unfortunately, your bikes' previous owners apparently made a mess of it; you'll have to first sort it out yourself. Still, once you get the hang of it, it is not a bad job.
