The "nut" is a collar that should have two tabs on it to prevent rotation, and most likely those are bent so they don't "clip" onto the fender... easily rectified when out, but if you can't get at them, then...... gotta pull the front wheel off. If you can get something in there to push the collar outboard, counteracting you pushing inboard on the screw, it may grab enough...??

At 88,121 miles replaced R5 on friend's 2014 with PR4GT. He is very unhappy with the R5 only lasting 7200 miles until left and center were bald. Left more than center. In the past he has run a PR4-not-GT for 11,700.

We took our time. Humidity must have been high because temperature was only 82įF. The R5 came off easy (I had originally mounted it). The PR4GT almost went over the rim without tools but two easy pries got the last bit over the rim.

Then we spent 30 minutes playing with my new Marc Parnes balancer. Darn thing is sensitive enough balance its own set screws if not positioned 180į opposite. The tape I use to hold weights before deciding their final position might have been enough to throw this thing off. I love it. My No-Mar balancer is not as good, but is probably good enough.

My 2007 had the same problem with that rearward nut / clip spinning on one side. I removed the caliper and then could get needle nose pliers to hold it from spinning and get the bolt out.
Afterward, just bent the 2 tabs back in place so they would grab the fender and remounted it.

#6 is what you are looking / feeling for under there.

All in 100 degree heat/humidity.
I didnít have any trouble removing my 2016 front fender. But then again I didnít try with the front wheel still in place. I was going all the way to the steering stem bearings at the time.

Takes me 8 minutes from carrying tools out of garage until front wheel is off. Including lifting the front.

Hey guys,
I got the new FJR registered at the DMV today. Took some twisties home and got familiar with the ride and creature comforts. I mentioned to N4HHE that I was amazed at how agile this bike is on the curves. Also I love the cruise control feature. There is power where you need it and the bike is very polite in town or heavy traffic. I definitely made a good decision to purchase the FJR.
