Default Cowling Removal

Would anyone be so kind as to point out where there may be a tutorial about removing the plastic to get access to the radiator and coolant tank? I would appreciate it...................a lot.

I just remove panel A to get to the radiator cap. To get to the coolant overflow, I loosen the right lower (without completely removing it).

Lots of "how to" here:

including dash panel removal here:

When it comes to removing fairing bits, it's just looking for all the fasteners and keeping track of what went where when putting them back together.
Ridden wet. Put up hard.

The first time I did it I used a little plastic bag for each section of bolts & fasteners, and numbered the heads of each against a sketch I did of the panel (the kind your wife keeps in the kitchen or banks use for change). Overkill? yes, probably, but it saved lots of head scratching when buttoning it all up.
