Fairing Pockets

How do you remove the pockets from the fairing on a 2004 Gl1800 with snaps and not screws ?

Push the center of the snaps in and remove each of them, then the pocket will come right out. Alternatively, just push in the centers and remove the pocket, being careful not to lose the buttons. To reinstall, reset the centers flush with the button and after putting the pocket back in, press the buttons into the holes in the corners. A ballpoint pen works well for pushing the centers.

One "improvement" to the above instructions!
The center pins need to be above the body of the rivet to reinstall! Then pushed until one feels them engage at which point the pins are then flush w/the button top of the body of the rivet.
