Remove rear cover.. rookie question

My first post!
I have got a 2005 Honda cbr1000rr
I removed the cover under the passengerseat yesterday. Where the rearlight is. I felt is was very hard to remove and even harder to put back. I had to bend that plasic like crazy. Is it ment to be so hard to remove and put back? It felt like I could have broken it. Im gonna change the directional indicators and remove the plastic in the rear. Im gonna make another try soon. Help are welcome..

Re: Remove rear cover.. rookie question

I'm assuming you are talking about the tail section?

If so, yea, that's normal, had to do it a few times on mine between turn signals and exhaust

Yea, it's an uneasy feeling. Good thing (I hope ) they put a flex agent in the paint.

Welcome aboard Sweep!. It is unnerving at first but you will develop a technique. I leave one side in place and flex the other side over as you move it to the back where it's norrower. That way you don't have to stretch it as much. The reverse for putting it back on.
