Never bought a model bike that was pretty new. When do service manuals usually become available? And where do you purchase it from? Thanks

So I bought the printed service manual from the website for freaking $100 shipped. It should just be included with the bike... :rolleyes:

Anyways, if someone needs something specific, or a torque spec let me know and I’ll do my best to get back to them.

Scan it to pdf and I’ll split with you. $50 i paid for the 14 day to get some wiring schematics, but geez it’s blurry when I zoom in. Is the book clear? Even when using a magnifying glass, can you clearly see wire color labels?

2nd day out, tipover, cracked left lower fairing (and bent clutch lever). The maze of tabs, screws, pop-out connectors has me struggling! Might add that can the seat removal be designed with any more steps? #*&@“#!
Back on topic, if you can send me a jpeg of the removal diagrams / instructions I’d be most appreciative.
big thanks,
Warren

That’s it. So many interconnected plastic pieces. Trying to do this without taking apart whole left side of bike!
Take out the exposed screws, then there are a handful of those plastic pop rivet things, the PITA one's with a screw head that does nothing useful. Two in the bottom center, a couple on the inside of the fairing right inside the front. I always end up replacing those with regular center push in ones, I just cannot figure them out. Pull the panel out from the bottom, where it snaps into the top fairing is odd too, they pop together with little molded in clips. You'll swear they will break when you do it but I have not had one let go yet. It's a big odd shaped piece, I cannot see how using driver of some sort to push in the clip part would help, and you would need two people to do that. If anyone has a better way to explain how they are supposed to work, please let us all know.

I think I’ve removed everything mentioned. Seems like the bugger will snap. Hey, it’s already damaged. I’ll give it a go.
Thanks for the info!!

Got it. Stumbled upon a couple more screws that had to be removed but all good. Now if the supplier had sent me the left side fairing, and not the right, prob be back together now.
