    A guide I read mentioned removing the fuel tank...  :012:

    A bit fiddly I am finding unless someone can advise a way which works for them.

    Many thanks, any help is appreciated.

    Top screw, top fairing? What guide mentions removing the fuel tank to fit the fairing :110: the fuel tank has to be in place to fit the fairings.

    The only screw I've struggled with is part 37 here. It can take some manipulating, the bolt has to pass through the centre fairing, stay and engage in a brass boss moulded into the side fairing which is not to be over tightened. I got fed up with that struggle so elongated the hole in the stay with a rat tail file.

    Or do you mean the top screw of the side fairing, part 29 here? In which case loose fit the 3 screws, fit the trim clips, nip up the screws and fit the inner panel & trim clip.

    It is 37 I am refering to.

    The boss is not moulded in on mine which is fun, which makes thinks annoying as is prone to falling out when manipulating the fairings to get into place.

    I was referring to this:

    Now for the fun bit - reinstalling the fairing. It's that top bolt which causes all the problems. My solution is to remove the tank so you can see down onto it. So, seats off, then two bolts at the front (10mm) and the one at the back (10mm). Remove them and slide the tank back, lift it up and prop it on the LH frame so you can see into the RH fairing at the back.

    Apologies if have misread.

    Fred, the author of that guide, is normally very thorough, but here I'm unclear on 'the fun bit' he talks of although I note the guide is for the removal and refitting of the lower fairings so I suspect its one of the part 29 bolts. How he would refit the petrol tank after the fairings I don't know.

    The most likely cause of that is that someone 'not allowed spanners' has been leaning on that little M5 bolt and has stripped the brass boss out of its ABS seating, these fairing bolts only need a nip to secure them. It's an easy fix using a plumbers ABS cement such as Floplast solvent cement or similar. Cement the boss back into its seating taking care not to gum up the internal threads with cement then repair and reinforce the surrounding area with several thin coats of cement allowing time to dry between coats.

    Thanks, your replies are helpful and appreciated.

    My "boss" is more of a spacer, definitely no thread.

    That bolt is part 29 (special bolt 90114-MCJ-000) except its not, it's been replaced with a pan head screw, nothing wrong in that if it does the job. The clip the bolt screws into is a M6 chimney nut which should hold firm on the fairing stay tab, if it doesn't crimp it before fitting or replace it with a new one, cheap as chips from Kays eBay shop.

    The knack, if there is one, to fitting the bolt is to have the chimney nut and tab aligned correctly, this can be done using a suitable cross point screwdriver or Allen key to ease it into place when offering the fairing up.

    Hi Gimpymoo,

    The text you referred to in my DIY article in one of your previous posts was a tekst contribution I received from member alan sh from his own work on a different kind of lower faring.
    Hence I canít comment on that, as I have not seen those details myself.

    Regards Ö Fred  :041:
