929 Fairing Removal

I've done it plenty of times before on other bikes but figured since my 929 is my baby that I would ask the best way to get the forward fairings off my 929.

I want to remove the fairings so that I can check all the bolts on my engine and just to generally cleanup and detail the engine.

I would've assumed take the top & shield off first, then the middle panels and then the lower.

Any hints and tips gladly accepted

Re: 929 Fairing Removal

I've never taken the front cowl off, the one around the headlights. However, the side ones, which are in 2 pieces, can be removed as one big piece. I've done that several times when I needed the fairing completely removed. For oil changes, I just remove the bottom one. If you want to disassemble all panels, then I'm with G-Force, work from the bottom up.

That the easiest way but like hondagal said take that bottom off as one peice (will work best if you have the bike on a stand)

the upper is no problem (not to play you short, mirrors need to come off)

Re: 929 Fairing Removal

Yup, as stated above, I actually preferred the 929 fairing over the 954 for removal. Being able to just remove the bottom for oil changes was a godsend...

Z...

You're f%#&king up my Chi...

Re: 929 Fairing Removal

Well I have to agree with all of you... now that I have tried it from the bottom up it is a much simpler affair.

Pulled all the side panels off... took each one inside... sat in front of the telly, polished, waxed and watched some Fast Bike vids... other than riding there is no better way to spend an afternoon.

I have a funny feeling that I may have got 2 of the mounting screws mixed up... but I will check during the week.

Thanks again for the help!
