Changing the deflector

I bought a new deflector to replace the one on the left side of the windshield that got damaged. The Clymer doesn't show mw how to get to it. Do I need to take off the entire front of the bike?
Thanks...

Re: Changing the deflector

remove the windshield, and the screws holding the dash cover on, pull the dash cover off, and the deflector is held on by 2 screws.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".

Re: Changing the deflector

I just took my dash apart and this is all from memory. You have to remove the windshield (four screws). Then you remove the back of the dash (seven screws, that includes the one behind the map light). after these are removed you can lift up on the back of the dash. The deflectors are held on with a couple of screws on the under side of this dash peice. You may have to raise the windscreen arms to get to two of the screws and then drop them to the lowest position to lift the back of the dash off. Watch the rubber washers on the windscreen/shield. They are pretty easy to drop. HTH.
