Hi
I have vibration coming from the fairing on closer inspection noticed that the allen key screw on the left side is not connected in any way can only presume the lug has broken off. Anyone advise on the removal of fairing or any links to photo tutorial have searched youtube to no avail.

Thanks Dennis After living in Queensland for a few years then moving to Sydney I do agree that the Sydney roads are no better than goat tracks

Good link, looks like someone with experience at it can get a lot of plastic off in twenty minutes. Looks a lot easier than taking the stuff off my Goldwing.

I am not so mechanically inclined, but with the service manual within easy reach I can actually remove the front cover and attendant pieces in about half an hour.

Removal of body work requires far fewer tools than I expected it would. A good set of hex keys and a #2 and #3 cross tip screwdriver were all I needed.

Mind those push/pull plastic fasteners.

I've had this problem on my Silverwing. The tab that the Allen hex bolt fastens to had broken as had the left hand tab near where your left knee will be when riding.

The front fairing comes off fairly easily. Remove the plastic cover between windscreen and headlamp, use a credit card or similar as in the video. Once you have the windscreen off and the black instrument binnacle cover, remove the radiator grille starting with the two plastic plugs situated under the bike. then proceed to remove the fairing.

Repair the tabs and splint them with extra plastic. I found that plastic, square section rain gutter cut to required sizes and shapes works well. Use a dremel multitool grider or similar to rough up the surfaces on splints and inner cover.

Dennis... Good day to you my OK friend.
Have you ever taken the front of the scoot off to the extent shown in the YouTube link you mentioned above? Looks fairly simple even for a rambuckous guy like me. In my opionion the only part of the project that is of a nature that someone with NO experience would find challenging are the push/pull trim clips. Someone should locate the guy that came up with that little item and push/pull a couple of the clips up his rectum. Once you hold one of them in your hand and see how they work it is not TOO bad, but to a newbie, they are hair pullers. I was fortunate to have you show me how they work when you put my outlets in. Without you doing that, I would still be trying to get one out. Or, knowing me, the drill would have been put to work. Or if that didn't work, the hammer and chisel.
My advice to any new member that wants to do a project like this on your own... use the resources available on this forum. Both written and human resources here can save you a lot of headaches. You will be amazed at how easy some of the projects are with help from our fellow members of this forum. Jeff has the pictorals for a lot of things and Dennis and others have the expertise that we should be paying big bucks for their advice.
This is such a great forum. Thank you all for the input you share here.

Hi Gary,

Yes...I have taken the front fairing off my scooter twice now. The last time was to repace it. That was interesting. A person needs to take all the bottom fairing screws out first and don't forget the one, up on the horn bracket.

Does anyone know of a manual that has pictures on how to assemble and disassemble Honda Silverwing, 07 all part, fairing and engine.

For the fairing removal, I used this YT video that I found very helpful:

I, too, looked at this interesting removal procedure for the front cowl... BUT... when are people going to learn how to make a proper training blog... doesn't anyone know the value of proper lighting???? Being able to easily see what is being talked about or "pointed" out is critical to most all procedures...

Sorry about the rant but I get tired of seeing these things done haphazardly .
