Cowling Removal

Due to stupidity of the rider (yes me) my FJR rolled off the kick stand and was caught by a shrub. Now I need to replace the upper left cowling due to scratches. The "official" manual may be the worst piece of documentation I have ever used. Do any of you have a step by step to remove front cowing. Its truly a rubics cube from my view.

Help is appreciated.

Others will reply to your problem Stephen

But in the meantime, the trick is to grind a little bit off your side stand stop so that the stand sits forward a bit more, 1/2 to 3/4 inch or so.

Unfortunately, new forum members like yourself tend to miss these little tips.

Welcome by the way !!
