    Introduction and Sequence

    The following DIY is comprised of several sections documented was the process to remove all the major panels for accessing the engine and other peripherals.

    That being said the details follow this order:

    1 - Pillion (Rear) Seat

    2 - Driver's Seat

    3 - Battery Cover

    4 - Left (Clutch Side) Panel

    5 - Right (Throttle) Panel

    6 - Tank Sides (L and R)

    7 - Tank Cover

    8 - Bottom (Skirt) Panels (L and R)

    9 - Assembly Hints

    ************************************************** ***********

    Tools Required:

    T-25 Torx of all the screws

    ************************************************** ************

    IMPORTANT NOTICE:

    There are various length Torx screws found on the same panel.

    The length differences will be called out in the information below.

    As a reminder reference the opening Disclaimer Message

    ************************************************** ************

    SECOND IMPORTANT NOTICE:

    The plastic pieces are large, especially the side panels - ensure you have an adequately sized area to store them while you work on the bike as it would be a shame to scratch and damage the pieces, plus they are expensive to repair/purchase
