Handlebar covers

Postby bohdan » Fri Dec 25, 2015 10:23 am



Gents, trying to figure how to remove the handlebar covers off a 93 wing. Manual doesn't cover and couldn't find on forums. Or am I overthinking it? Any help would be appreciated. Going to replace right hand switches. Merry Xmas!

Thanks spiralout. Did you get this out of the service manual? Couldn't find it in the 93 version. Mighty obkiged

You might want a helper when reinstalling them. Getting the covers in the right place, with the wires inside them, and the plates on top, then holding all of that to keep it from moving while screwing the plates in place requires three or four hands to do, and is an exercise in frustration when doing it yourself.
