How to remove the fairing nose piece

I need to fix my headlight adjuster, and I can not for the life of me fine any info on removing the nice piece. the bike is undressed except for that and it is acting like there are two screws still holding it on.

Re: How to remove the fairing nose piece

Have you got the grey piece off that covers the windshield brackets?

Re: How to remove the fairing nose piece

There's a hidden screw under the aux dashboard light. Be careful not to drop the screw! You also may have to move the windshield brackets a little.

+1... That's the one that "gets everyone". Remove the auxiliary dash light with a flat blade screwdriver, and you'll see it up under there.

That's been posted a few times. They un-snap.
Put pressure from outside edge toward center and peel up inside edge.
Apparently they make a loud snap.

I'll be doing the same maintenance (for the first time,)you describe in your other thread very soon.

Good luck on yours.

Re: How to remove the fairing nose piece

Tim, If you haven't done so yet... remove the dash/map light by inserting a small flat bladed screwdriver in the left hole and popping that light out. Behind it is a T25 screw that has to come out. Will help to have a small flash light to illuminate in there. Careful not to drop the screw.

That screw and the two screws on the sides where the windshield raising/lowering arms go through those slots got me on the first removal of my '99 years ago.

So to be sure... there are a total of 7 T25 screws holding on the instrument panel cover. Four for the base of it, two on the sides (These are really short so as not to rub) and then the one for the map light.

Hope this helps a bit.

Re: How to remove the fairing nose piece

Note: the windshield arms hide two screws, you need to raise it a bit to remove them, then raise the windshield arms all the way to get it off, and there is that screw dead center front

Thanks everyone!

Re: How to remove the fairing nose piece

Do you have to remove the tupperware in order to take the front fairing off? Please say no! I have to resecure the headlamp to it, and I dread taking the tupperware off, again.

Milton,
I think we all dread taking the tupperware off. The thing to remember is that the more often you do it the easier it becomes.

Re: How to remove the fairing nose piece

Oh! forgot to mention, a battery screwdriver helps. Be sure not to iver tighten the rubber mounts though.
