Hi,

I have a 2001 K1200LT that I am trying to put some new fairing parts on. I have run into a problem with the front fairing which holds the headlamp and is not explained in any manual. I have gotten the fairings off down to this part.....it seems to have some connector at the top center under the instrument console, but I can not get at this in any way. I can't see how to get the console off and am stumped. I spent more than 8 hours on this, read manuals, surfed the web, to no avail.
Can anyone help me with this...
Thanks

If I remember correctly, you must remove the windscreen first, than the screws holding the nose fairing become visible--going around in a circle at the top.

Michael,
Not sure from your post exactly how far you have gotten. Did you take the windshield off yet, you need to do that to get the top of the dash. Three screws will get that part off.
Hope that is where you are stuck?

Noticed you also posted to an old thread, don't worry about the dash light it will pop out, just slip a thin flat blade behind it.

Don't forget that one screw that you can only get to after removing the dash light.

Hi, Michael. You're probably good to go on nose cone removal now, and for the future times you remove it, click here for a detailed rundown. It will help in putting everything back together again too. Have fun - good luck. ;)
And here is some more information on tupperware removal of the various panel parts. After clicking on this, check out Marco's item and a couple more in that same line up. Includes pictures and some helpful hints on related activity. Just sayin'.

Thank you all for the replies .....and the route to Marco's site in particular. I was able to download that as a word doc with big pics.

Hey, maybe a little late, but i just purchased a 2009 LT and previous owner kept the motorrad nav IV. I purchased a Garmin zumo 660LM, and did tons of research here and other websites on how to remove the fairing. I wanted to share my experience removing the upper panels.
First off get a helper and dont be intimidated, its a bit of work but hard wiring your own GPS is the best feeling. I ended up removing both sides in order to get the "stingray" completely off because getting the harness thru the small hole was a bitch.
I also had towels on the floor surrounding the bike that way if i dropped screws they wouldnt be rolling all over the place
Long story short, the help i found here made it quite a bit easier, i should have documented the whole thing but i was sweating bullets the entire time lol.
