Newb Q: For Track Day Prep

A question to the other 1199 owners out there who both track and street ride their bikes...

Are the mirrors and tail section easily removed? And by "easily" I should clarify. They don't seem all that hard to unbolt but I'm curious what kind of wiring there may be that would need to be wrapped/taped/etc.

Thanks in advance!

I transfer my 959 between track and road use pretty often. Tail section takes me about 30 minutes to disassemble OEM fairings and reassemble with track fairings .

Are you planning on removing the taillight or just unplug it? If you're just gonna unplug it I would pull the fuse instead. I believe that is what I did for my first track day.

My plan for the lights was to unplug the fuses and tape the plastic.

But the mirrors either need to be taped or removed entirely and since there are blinkers in the mirrors I'm just not sure if the mirrors have wires that will be left hanging once they're detached from the bike. Same with the license plate area... I don't know if there are wires left behind once that thing is detached.

Yes they have a clip with 2 wires to it. Un clip and remove mirrors. Once you tackle it. You will know what to do.

In both cases wires can be tucked up into the bike easily. For the mirrors, the connectors (1 on each mirror) can be pushed down into the space between the frame and fairing, then retrieved with needle-nose pliers when you want to put them back on. Don't forget to get some bolts to take the place of the mirrors - those bolts hold the fairing to the stay.

License plate area you can easily remove the whole arm - four bolts under the rear cowl. Three connectors, and they can be pushed back up into the tail - there's a rubber cover with a slit in it that goes back into the tail storage - just shove 'em up there.
