Removing fairing video tutorial

I found this on another site. The only thing I would add is I find it is much easier to reinstall the fairing on the hooks with the headlights removed.

The video actually shows the proper way to do this procedure. I never removed the headlights to install the outer fairing, removing the headlight assembly is a wasted step and takes more time.

Unless, like I did this weekend, you add a whole bunch of too-short wiring bundles. I've never had a problem putting the fairing back on with the headlights still in place but this time it gave me fits. I added the bike-to-bike or CB system and Harley made all the wire harnesses too short and the connectors all ended up right where the headlights need to be, it took a couple hours of rerouting and moving crap around before I could get it all to fit. Ugh. Plus I have two HogTunes amps in there with that wiring as well. If it was totally stock, man, that would be a piece of cake!!

They should have advised covering the front fender though.

TB, that's exactly what I was thinking. I have so many wire harnesses and other 'chit tucked inside that the wires get in the way of the clip. It's much easier (and less frustrating) to remove the headlights.

Bazinga punk! Now we're even!

Pretty simple but as always exceptions to the rule especially with inner fairing mods. Did mine in stock form and was a piece of cake.

Seems simple enough. Nice video thanks for sharing.
Now maybe I will go see if I have any of that Radio brackets perforating the fairing through the inside issue

Definitely agree on removing the headlights--I take my medicine for 10 minutes for zippy frustration later on.
