Plastic engine covers

Hi

How easy is it to remove the horrible plastic engine covers that are fitted, i like the raw look of seeing the engine like my old 1199s

i have had the fairings off and disconnected what i think is required to remove the fuel tank but the fuel tank won't come off, does it need to come off or can the rear subframe be removed with it still in place
Thanks

You gotta lift the tank. It's not a big deal but be careful not to break the plastic fuel line T fitting.

Has anyone removed these and ridden the street, do you notice extra heat? do your knees/legs hit the engine cases? I have the subframe off changing the heat shield to carbon fiber, yes you pretty much have to take the rear subframe off to get the front two bolts out of the stock heatshield..

I have ridden the bike on the street (38C max) and track with the covers removed.

Frankly, I don't notice any difference - except the the bike looks much better.

Awesome, I went ahead and removed these covers the other day, looks soooo much better sans stoopid plastic covers, it is a MOTORcycle and it seems the manufacturers have forgotten that the MOTOR is a thing of Art..
