The link I posted clearly shows its for a Z1000SX as most of the instructions are about removing the fairing!!

You will be OK, as I said it must be bloody obvious or I wouldn't have managed  :001: :028:

Removing the fairings is 10 minutes work each side and fitting the cover took me another 10 to 15 minutes on top of that. Easy enough, just a little fiddly if you're working on your own but not  technically complicated.

Did you fit the Evotech guard? Where did you stick the foam pads?

I have fit the boewulf rad guard , the foam pads are to stop the guard rubbing on your radiator , I actually stuck some extra foam around the guard as you don't want the guard to vibrate on your rad , I never removed any fairings, like they say it is easy and obvious how to fit it hook the toop lugs over the rad aquare it up and fix the bottom ,simples ..

So rad guard fitted fine. Didn't actually need the evotech hardware supplied. Just the foam strips cut to length and applied vertically to either side of rad guard.

 :431: resurrecting an  :481:

Just wondering how John’s video of 2018 bike compares to the 2016 bike?

I’ve got a 2016 SX and need to know if there’s any extra surprises or differences I need to be aware of before attempting to remove fairings??
