Hi guys merry Christmas from the uk or happy holidays if you're American. The scooter has performed brilliantly over summer and into winter thanks to all the work I did last winter. But this winter I'd like to address a minor issue of the front storage surround not fitting flush on the right side. This is the panel that surrounds the glove boxes or front storage compartments iam thinking of getting this hydro dipped in carbon or maybe just a new panel not genuine honda though they are impossible to get over here but a company in Europe makes them for about £100. However my experience last year of removing silverwing panels involved lots of swearing and cuts on my hands ha... So any help or hints removing this panel would be greatly appreciated.. Thank you

No tips. But...

You’ll need to remove that front end again, then remove the Front Cover Stay (the frame over the Combination Meter); disconnect the wire harness from the Combination Meter; remove the CM from the Meter Panel and remove the Meter Panel; remove the handle bar surround; then remove the Inner Box. You'll probably need to loosen the Center Cover (Tunnel Cover) too.

It’s a tedious job, but not difficult.

While you are going thru all that aggro, and if you have an early model Silverwing with the painted dash and cubby covers, you might think about changing those cubby covers to the later model “padded” covers. That job is immensely easier with the Meter Panel removed.

Oh yeah, here is one tip: label all the screws so you know where they came from.

Mrmoz, Merry Christmas to you also. I took thin rubber gaskets to go between glove door and panel to keep it from vibrating . The rubber gaskets are what I used around house doors to keep out cold drafts and cut about 1cm wide and bout three inches long and put on outer side of front storage box. You have to apply a little pressure to secure lock. This stops a lot of clatter from box door.

Most of us in the US still say "Merry Christmas" santa it's only a certain group of people who find it offensive. I find that offensive.

I notice that in say doctors offices they say happy holidays, I look at them and say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, almost all smile and return the greeting. Me thinking they are instructed to say xxxxxx or yyyyyy by their pocketbook. If one would think I'm doing anything other than greeting you that way please remember my Thanksgiving was spent at my daughters Turkish family table eat both nations food, everyone smiling and talking. For the actions of a few judge not a nation from either side of the fence.
Smile thinking back to my working days at the plant and the food brought in for anyone to share, a most enjoyable way to taste the foods of other countries. Y'all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
