Question

Hi EveryoneūüôÉ

 

I have joined the forum as moved from CBR to 8th gen 2015 VFR and whilst the one colour is a trademark of the VFR, I want to place some graphics on the panels to break up the "redness" colour

 

So before I venture into the unknown of first time fairing removal on the VFR, ( did it on two CBR's Which was painless but a test of ones patience)  which can be tricky and there is always a clip, screw, pin, fastening that keeps it from leaving the frame, does anyone have any photo of the stages of fairing removal.

 

I have looked and there are bolts and push pins dotted about, ¬†I have the very bottom fairing off but now working my way to the middle, so before I start my 4 letter ranting and¬†¬†pulling and pushing in a fit of frustration¬†ūüėÜ is there any help out there. (fairing with the black side panel attached)

 

Any help would be great from those that have been there and done that. I have searched google for any diagrams, photos & manuals but so far drawn a blank for 8th gen.

 

Sorry if this has been discussed before but picture process works best for me.

 

I will post  before and after pictures when done but need to get the panels off to get started.

 

Thanks in advance

If you haven't already done so you can download the full Service Manual from the forum.

Section 2 explains and shows the removal of the fairings. Once you've done it a couple of times its fairly simple.

Good luck and post some pictures of your bike.:fing02:

You need to be careful. Softy does it! There are a couple of fine tabs up top, that link with the headlight section. If you’re too ham fisted they might break.

The only thing difficult to reach are the 2 of the push pins on the inner that have to come out 

 

I ended up using a small Allen key in a pair of mole grips 


As VFR78 said careful with the tabs at the top
