There is the fuse panel with several fuses, the main fuse by the battery and in the fairing there are 3 or 4 clam fuses depending on the electronics you have installed..depending on your set up you may be be able to remove the whole left side pocket..4 screws hold it in..

Most of the fuses in the fairing can be accessed easily by removing the left front turn signal. No key required to do that, just a philips screwdriver.

As for the 7 volt regulator - it is EASIER to do it by removing the fairing, but you don't HAVE to - I've done it before without removing the fairing. You need some dexterity and patience to do it, but it can be done. You have to remove the back of the instrument pod (where the lights are, between the tach & speedo), and you'll find it near the bottom.

I don't have a picture. The closest I have are the parts diagrams. The hood is held in place by two (I believe) screws, near the top (16). It comes off fairly easily.

The center instrument pod has a cover (item 15 in this diagram). There are four screws in the back (23) that are 4mm hex head machine screws, so this helps, because you can use a small ratchet to get in behind and remove them. Once they're out, the back cover can be removed. You might want to also remove the screws on the front (24) which releases the pod itself, to help maneuver things around.

Once the back is off, there are two nuts (19) holding the 7 volt regulator (1) in place that need to be removed. There is also a washer (28) and nut (26) that holds the output wire of the regulator on the input terminal of the meters.

If it's not too late.... I did this on my 82 Aspy and I found that removing the windshield made things easier.
