Wiper Linkage Bushing

Guys. How bad am I in for it? I'm pretty mechanical when it comes to automotive repairs. But I genuinely think I lack the organization skills needed to remove and replace this many fasteners successfully. But I don't even want to imagine the cost to do this service at the dealer. RIP.

FJR's don't have wipers, lol. You mean windshield mechanism bushings?


Nose fairing comes off as one piece with the headlights. Center screw at middle of headlights comes out AFTER you get the whole thing off.
Basically remove mirrors and windshield, dash pieces. 4 main screws that hold the front nose to the mirror stay (one each outboard end, two near steering head. Work slowly, have a flashlight. May be a screw at the battery tray forward end... remove side fairings first to see it, if one is there. Just pull forward and look for any other attachments that are holding you from moving it forward.

Old thread in another sandbox.........

PS - I have a full set (I think) of Gen2 windshield bushings, etc.... now I can mail it, but may take a coupla weeks or so these days...... you are welcome to it for postage.

Call it a force of habit from selling auto parts for 5 years. You're right its for the windshield.

It's worse in your mind than it is in practice.

This is very true. You have to break it up into parts or small sections at a time. When you see the whole picture like this the mind gets overwhelmed. Take it one step at a time. A lot of this you can figure out without the manual. You simply look at the fairings and start taking screws out. Every now and then you will get frustrated because something is simply not coming undone. Sometimes you simply missed a screw, clip, or otherwise. When frustrated, your attention is not focused on the task... you miss the obvious. Take a step back, calm yourself and use the manual to locate what you have missed. Most of the job is just taking out fasteners holding the plastics onto the bike. Nothing too complicated. Just requires patience and time.

For Gen2 plastics removal. A couple minor differences from '06 & '07+ but very helpful -> https://www.dropbox.com/s/tlfvv03xc2...moval.pdf?dl=0. Feel free to download.
