Great post, looks like my next purchase will be the R&Gs and your post will help no end in the fitting.

Thanks

My invoice shows £165+VAT at a Kawasaki dealer 2 years ago for the crash protectors.  They're £166.66+VAT on R&G's site now.

I hate fairings! :134:

Used your guide, no real problems apart from not reconnecting the indicator and having to take it to bits again

Good post Andy, one question: what torque are the bolts done up to, I presume this is mentioned in the instructions?

44 N.m or 32 ft.lb.  :002:
March 13 to March 15 - CB600F Hornet
March 15 to NOW - Z1000SX ABS Tourer

I couldn't get the front hook out so ended up just working behind the fairing. My mount bolts were also not real tight, so R&G said 40 nm torque, I set the wrench to 35 nm. That felt tighter than hell to me, so I left it at that.
This thread was a great help to me finding the fasteners to remove the fairing.

Just an addition.
I ended up taking both fairings off as I needed to do some other stuff under there. Easy with this guide.
The R&G frame sliders are by far the biggest beefiest set you're going to find for this bike.
