Tupperware Removal 08 K1200GT

Looking for advice on proper sequence for bodywork removal
Which piece 1st?
Want to possibly install a Stebel horn, and want to have a little look see,
but do not want to force clips and such in fear of breaking/crackng $$
Had the battery cover off....easy, then got confused(does not take much)

Went to HOW and saw James thread but only shows schematics of parts
does not show me which piece 1st or which end of tool to hold

Confounded and bored by the snow,
Rick

Rick,

BTW...love the color of your bike too! Good choice! Got just over 3K on mine and it keeps getting better and better.

I had my little baby fall off a Park 'n Crash (Move) last spring which did a lovely job of adding some unintended random pin stripes in the fiberglass down the sides of my right lower fairing and bag. Once I dried the tears, I had the pieces repainted and looks good as new.

Taking the right fairing off was a piece of cake. Semper Fi's excellent pictures and written instructions are right on. Just make sure you have the space to store the side piece (on a nice soft blanket, sheet or group of small animals) and it's really not a big deal. Believe me, if I could do it, anybody can do it. Remember...my bike fell over on a Park 'n Move!

I'm thinking about adding the Stebel horn system as well. Let us all know how it goes and take some pictures if you decide to make the move. I'll do the same once the temperature in my garage goes above 40 degrees or so!

Please ride safely!

Peter

Just Do IT!!! Lots of places and there is plenty of room under the left side fairing although you'll still need to take off the right side one to get to the stock horn and it's harness.

For the $$$ it is one of the better one's in the safety department. I wished i had done it earlier.

Biggest problem i consistantly have is getting the relay set up right but with Semper_Fi's instructions, not much you can miss there.

It's a saturday afternoon project once you have all the parts.

Good Luck!

Ride Safe!
