what tools needed for lower right fairing

Hey Guys,
can someone chime in on what tools and sizes of tools i will need to cahnge out the lower right side fairing? My bike is waiting for me in Vegas and i know there is a small crack in the fairing that is on the bike. I have a new one waiting for me there but I do not know what is needed. I'd like to be prepare and have everything I need when it's time to pick her up. Thanx a bunch!!

Re: what tools needed for lower right fairing

You can get it done with a one small metric allen wrench and a couple of small torx bits. I don't remember the specific sizes but if you have one each of those multi wrench sets that fold out like a pocket knife, you will be good to go. It would be a good idea since this is your first time, to look at a maintenance manual to see where all the screws are located. Also good if you map out the screw locations so that you can get them back in the right places during install. You may be able to find a maintenance manual on this site somewhere. Perhaps someone who knows how to find it will provide a link. Don't let me scare you though. It is a pretty easy job that you should be able to feel your way through if you have to.

Re: what tools needed for lower right fairing

If the factory fasteners are in there you will need a 3 mm allen and a t-25 torx. If it is an 05 and up you will also need a #1 phillips for the courtesy lights in the tip over wing. If there are after market pegs like "J-pegs" of Mik-o-pegs you may need some additional tools to get the tipover wings off and chrome trim. Once they are off the fairing attachments are revealed.

Re: what tools needed for lower right fairing

I would ship the new fairing part home & change it when you have rode the LT home. You never know when you might wish you still had the faring with the small crack in it.

Re: what tools needed for lower right fairing

There is almost nothing worse than replacing a very expensive part, isn't that lower fairing about $400+, than dropping the fixed bike and damaging the just replaced part. If it was me, I might want a few weeks to get use to the new bike. Especially one like the LT, which is notorious for falling on it's side by experienced riders who have never dropped a bike before. Ask me how I know ?

I would ship the new part back home and replace it when I got home.

Regardless, what ever you do, remember to park the bike in first gear when you park it on it's side stand. If there is the slightest decline, it could roll off the stand and down she'll go. But that will take out the left side lower fairing not the right.

Re: what tools needed for lower right fairing

Take a drill and some zip ties to shore up the crack. Depending on where the crack is, you might not need to do that. If you do, you can call it Frankenbike!

My bike came with J-pegs when I got it that replaces the OEM tip over wing frame with a billet aluminum one. The black plastic cover has 2 screws with T-15 Torx head and the tip over frame needs a 5mm (I tihink) hex bit. All the fairing screws are T-25 Torx. The footrest bracket is 6 mm hex. Hopefully your bike comes with the BMW tool kit that has everythng you need for roadside disassembly.
