Help, noob question

Hi everyone,

It's kind of a noob question so thank you in advance for any help.

I want to swap the front indicators, I've tried to access to it, and I unscrewed all the screws I saw in the front fairing to the point everything would come out except the side panels I need to have access to the indicators.

What am I doing wrong?
I believe it shouldn't be this hard but I really couldn't see how to remove the indicators.

Thanks

Here is a diagram of where the nuts that hold the indicators on are located:

Inside the front fairing, there is a panel screwed onto the inside of the fairing. This covers the back of the blinkers. Take the mid fairing off, then pull the panel off the inside of the fairing. Viola, blinker mounts.

Never ride faster than you can stop

Thanks for the diagram, but I can't even get to the indicator

I think I need to find that panel inside, because I just couldn't access the inside screw of the indicator.
I've had a Bandit and Fazer before, and they were easy to access the indicators

Now it just seems a lot of work to remove the all fairing to remove the indicators

Thank you for the help

they are a wanker to get at, you can take side panels of and get access that way or take the nose cone of the bike ,,,or try to remove ram air system if you leave the nose cone in place ,the easiest route i would say would be to remove the side fairing as its about 6 bolt/screws on each side

When I tried to remove the side fairing I removed the boys on the side but when I pull the whole fairing comes off, front inclusive. Should I pull it a bit harder? I'm gonna try removing the nose cone Monday and see if it's easier hehe. Thanks

you dont want to yank to hard as the panels might snap ,its an ass of a job but patience and a pkt of ciggys then its all sweet lol,its a fiddly job with the front part as you got the ram pipes ect but just be patient it will all pop back together nicely
