V4R fairing removal question

I have removed most of the bolts on the fairings, lower off. Front fairing center bolt, tank cover off, etc. The middle fairing seems to have one last inaccessible bolt in the middle under the frame. How does that come off?

Pull it outwards. The central fairing is located on a pin under the front frame. This pin is now on a bracket on the V4R as opposed to being screwed directly into the frame vertically underneath for what would be the locating pin for the inner panels on a V4 or V4S. See the image and the area marked by red arrow. Hope this helps....Topo

There is also an ok video on youtube that helps understand how the fairing go off, for the first time on a V4:

Yes Mordor but the V4 and V4S have a different front frame pin that the inner fairing locates on. The OP was referring to the R model. On the R it is used to locate the mid fairing as there are no inner panels and the pin itself is on a bracket and the bracket attaches to the frame where the V4/V4S pin would normally be..

Got it, thanks all.

Yes I was bending the fairing a bit when pulling it off. Relubed the bushing so it doesn't feel so 'stuck' (I really thought it was a bolt). Thanks for the diagram too - all the fairing manuals and references I could find only referred to the V4/V4S.
