Probably not bad advice after the several hours I took after the lower rubber nut fell down into the fairing and I had to take the whole front end apart to find it!!! I guess on the bright side, I now know how to remove the front fairing and learned more about working on my bike. The job was a total pain in the a$$ though just because that one nut fell into a place where I couldn't see it. In the event you need to remove the front fairing, I highly recommend this video....

Thanks from Lisa

To remove the nose, you need to remove the main fairings and the intake covers also, which includes removing the ignition cover. All fairly easy. You also have to cut some zipties for the cables than run up to the headlights.

Couple it with an oil change then you're already halfway there. Maybe check and refill your radiator or change your fuel dump lines to twist-offs. Maybe an air filter change, etc.

This is all easy but time consuming, and as you know your dealer charges by the hour. Fly me to SD and ill do it for a 6 pack and some fish tacos =-)

I can send you a PDF of the work if you like.

I just changed the windscreen, you have to remove Nose to get to lower grommets, therefore you have to remove side panels. Took about two hours as I took my time to not break any clips

Just changed out my windscreen this morning. Took about 1 & 1/2 hrs. As AG6 stated above, took my time to learn how the fairings fit and came apart. I could probably tackle it in 30 min next time. Honestly its not hard at all. Hardest part for me was getting the mirrors on. The rubber covers on the bottom were a little bit of a pain just have to use a little finesse.

I've taken them off so many times now even the mirrors only take a few seconds each.

I never hesitate to work on my bike. It bonds you with the machine.
