Anyone else have this problem? My left side (non-locking) fairing pocket doesn't pop open with the push of the button any longer. I can't seem to find the problem. I had some work done at the dealer who had to r/r some of the side fairing parts - and I wonder if something is binding.

Funny thing is, several days ago it started working fine for a short time, then I had trouble opening it again. I have to pull at the top edge of the door while pushing the button to get the thing opened, and it's getting on my nerves (my garage door remote is in there) :x

Any one else have this happen, or any ideas???

There are a couple of little metal tabs very near the hinges that can be adjusted and will almost always solve your problem. Takes all of 10 seconds to adjust.

Maybe someone can post a pic of them.

I figured it out - it's a sticky latching mechanism. A little lube and it's working as it should now. Thanks for the help, DT!
