Subject: Front fairing off Fri May 08, 2009 9:10 am
When I bought the new scooter I was aware that it had some slight cosmetic damage, a few scrapes where the bike had been leant against a wall or something. Anyway when I got the bike home closer inspection showed a gap between the LHS of the fairing and the dashboard. I quickly sussed out that this was a broken fixing tab.
Today I removed the front fairing. Process as follows. Remove the radiator cover then the cover above the headlamp. A youtube video showed a chap using a credit card to assist with this. Using the card to aid the cover sliding over the indicator lens I removed that then the windscreen and instrument cowl. Next remove all screws and bolts from the front fairing and disconnect the light loom. Hey presto with a little jiggling the front fairing comes away. Total time around 50 minutes.
I repaired the broken tab with Poly Weld and built up a couple of broken lugs then splinted all with more plastic.
