You gotta lift the tank. It's not a big deal but be careful not to break the plastic fuel line T fitting.
I have ridden the bike on the street (38C max) and track with the covers removed.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..
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..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.
Did you have to remove the subframe also? Or could you get to them without removing it? I Only ask cause I read another post where they said to remove the subframe. Thanks for any tips going to be doing this next week also.You gotta lift the tank. It's not a big deal but be careful not to break the plastic fuel line T fitting.
