Trying to remove the piece of fairing above the headlight but after removing the screws the bottom clips are stubborn and wont give up. I can see with a flashlight that the previous owner has already repaired the clips with epoxy, so i dont want to force it too much like they did. I read on a post here to push " down" to remove, but i tried down, up, over, back, sideways, frontwards but i feel im going to break the clips again!! Whats the secret????

Carefully "bump" the piece up toward the windshield with your hand, first one side then the other. This is how I got mine off for the first time. I was also challenged by this piece...

Thanks guys. The video makes it look easy. I'll try again. Looked like a credit card helped the clips slip forward. May be a good way to get rid of the visa card. Neutral

Famous last words. Smile Seriously, you can do it. How do I know? Because I did. That proves that anyone can.
