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??

Shandy if. You hang. On 5 mins I'll find you a video of. The older model fairing I saw recently

Shandy here you go. He covers fairing removal in the beginning part. Doesn't look that different to me...

 :828: Ninja, I’ll give it a go when I get home after a few errands.

Apparently, clearing out and vacuuming the car didn’t earn enough wife points just yet  :192: lol

I just looked at that video and it is correct for 2016 model which mine is.
As lots of others say just be gentle pulling the fairing backwards after you have released the push studs as the small plastic "hooks" are quite fragile.
I have done it several times without breakage.

I tried in my 2018 without fairing removal and it was a pain as you need to hook one end of the rad guard over the spigot on one side of the rad. Or at least you have to with the evotech guard.

Fairing removed, by moonlight and head torch in the end  :112:

fairly easy just got to have faith and give them a generous tug at some points.

A bit behind where I wanted to be but just means tomorrow I’ve got to wash, ACF50 it all fit rad guard and replace rear hugger  :087: busy new year it’ll be lol

I’m just nervous now, getting it off is the easy part. Just got to remember how it all goes back on!  :187:

Still I need the bike Wednesday morning for work, so it’s got to all be done!  :006:
