GL1500 Left Side Fairing Inner Cover removal help

Post by chuckcal »



First time removing the plastics, did pretty well, but the left side fairing inner cover is stuck on the CB Radio. I don't have the right manual showing how the CB separates from the cover. Is there something to unscrew, or pry loose? Hesitant to just pull harder. Everything else described in image is removed. Any help is appreciated.

There's a CB Radio installation manual right here on the site -
/Docs/Honda%20G ... -DDF6B.pdf

It might give some clues as to what's holding the radio to the cover...

I have had that lower panel off several times and I don't recall the CB being attached to the panel. I think it just goes in the opening in that panel and it should just pull away. If you have all the screws removed, you should be able to just pull it back from the CB. It has been a while since I had mine removed but that is how I remember it.

Huge help, that answered my question and has some nice diagrams of removing the plastics.


Thanks!

The CB radio comes out with the panel. And then there are 2 screws under the radio that attach the CB to the back of the panel.

Correct. I have NEVER removed the CB from that panel. Just disconnect the wires from it, and it comes out still attached. Makes the job much easier that way.

Disconnecting the wires:
