Removing plastic panel from GL1500 help needed

Post by flw »



Anyone know of a how to for removing much of the plastic panels on the GL1500 with pics or video ?

Since each version is different and it needs to be removed in a specific order, I need one for the GL1500. Also need suggested tools

I tried youtube but came up empty.

Surest way is with service manual open. Cheapest way too if it prevents breakage.

What are you trying to get to? Don't recall videos devoted just to panel or "tupper-ware" removal, usually the tips are related to access to the main topic of the video. Stuff is easy to break so most guys won't be removing & installing them just to do a video on the subject.

Most of the videos I have looked at explain what is needed, usually some hard learned tips & tricks too, especially the ones here on this sight. Good place to start, really … viewtopic.php?f=8&p=310562#p310562 WingAdmin does a great job on his.

Different panels have different attachments, it helps to know what is there before your "OOOPS" moment. If it happens, there is a fix it thread in the 1500-DIY section … viewtopic.php?f=14&t=54225


Make Courtesy your "Code of the Road" …

… & Have a Safe Trip!
:)
