Fairing puzzle

Post by Psycheonabike »



Hi from a misty and foggy South West of England UK.

I added a 1mm shim to the two exposed carbs and WHAT a difference. Low end hesitation almost gone. Now I plan on doing the other two but cannot see how or where to even start removing enough of the fairing to access the carbs. Has anyone got a walk through as the Clymer manual isnt particularly clear

Thanks!!!

As I recall, only needed to remove fairing lowers on each side, not the faux fuel tank or top.

Maybe so … been 20+ years since I done it, but on bright side, easy as long as you have a place to set it down. No wires in the way, no cables either.
