Help! Fairing removal

What is the correct order of removing left, right + front fairings?

I'm now due for coolant flush-replacement, what is the recommended type of coolant? silicated or non-silicated?

then while i'm at it i need to add my frame sliders.

thanks in advance, jd_fjrwannabe

There is a great write up on coolant type and replacement at www.fjrtec.com, I believe. Has all the info you could want on the subject.

The "front" - I assume that you mean the chin piece behind the wheel, inbetween the left and right fairings at the bottom below the radiator.

The front chin piece comes off still attached to the right hand (sat on bike) fairing, so remove the left hand one first, undoing the two fasteners on the chin piece beforehand + the one underneath. The right + chin piece then comes off together.

Put something soft underneath the bike, you are likely to scrape the bottom edges when you do this.

The indicators are connected behind both l+r fairings with two wires and bullet connectors - just pull them apart.

Stand back and admire this stonking engine in all its' glory.
