removal upper/lower fairing 1985 LTD

Postby winger in san diego » Thu Oct 08, 2009 11:12 am



This is my first post here and I have used this site to download manuals...Awesome. I am try to trace a short that runs from my light switch panel down through the front and lower fairing to god knows where. I am blowing the 15A "tail light" fuse (the warning light comes on). How do I remove the lower fairing to get to the wiring??? While I am at it how about the upper heaven forbid. I have never attempted this before and it is pretty intimidating. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I don't know if it's the same as the 1100, but if it is, you can follow this guide: How to remove your fairing lowers

Thanks for the reply. I copied your post on the removal of the lower fairing, very helpful as is all your "how to" topics. I posted a more detailed thread on Steve's site. I have isolated the wire that is shorting to ground and of course it runs God knows where under the front fairing. I decided to check everything and have removed the seat, faux tank, and lower fairings. My question is "Do I need to take the mirrors and windshield off, and how the hell do I get to the headlight." Thanks, your help, and I love your site!!
