If you mean the upper fairing pocket, you just push in on the center of the four pins and then pull them out. Pocket comes right out.

If you mean the one wit hthe controls for the headlight and pre-load, you have to remove the long plastic strip byt pushing it to one side and pulling out a bit, and then remove the one screw inthe panel, and then push the panel toward th center of thebike and that releases the clip....you have to pull out on it at the same time. there is a clip onthe outboard side of the panel.

Hope that helps.

Remove the fairing trim strip starting at the bottom. Push in the center of the 4 pins holding the pocket in place and remove them. Lift pocket.......

Oooops...forgot the trim has to come off for the pocket too.
That's why we got you Red.......good call!

Watch out that you don't bend that trim piece much in the area where it curves.....it's tender there!

Glad I'm good for something! LOL... On the earlier models you didn't have to remove the trim strip.

Yea, there are clips(catches), (hooks), running down both sides of the trim on the backside about 4 inches apart or so. If you start on one side like at the botton inside and pull outboard you'll make it happen, and from there it's very understandable.

Fairing pocket "pins"

Does anyone know the correct name and/or the part number for the small black pins that secure the four corners of the left and right fairing pockets.

Also, does anyone have the same info for the two larger pins that secure the lower cowl to the bottom of the fairing, directly behind the front wheel.

Thanks.

Tip: push in the center of the 4 pins, CLOSE the lid, then lift out the pocket. This stops them from flying out and getting lost.

I'll have to try that next time, sounds like a really good idea. An idea that makes ya say, "why didn't I think of that?"

I just can't tell you all enough how valuable this site is! I am installing a Hondaline power adapter tomorrow and did a search to find how to remove the fairing pocket. Thanks to all who have traveled these roads and share their knowledge.

Thanks to all the previous instructional posts, my install is done and all went well. I did not have a 30mm hole saw. I had an inch & 1/8" and an inch & 1/4". The inch & 1/4 was a little large. I used the inch and 1/8 and worked it out slightly with a file.

It's one of the better removals of tupperware on the bike, I actually find it pleasurable to remove the pins. Just press in on the center, the pin just pops out. I do all four at once, put them inside the fairing pocket as I remove it and voila - done! As for the trim, gently ease a flat tip screwdriver under from the bottom, then I use the same flat tip to help ease the rest of the trim off, making darn sure not to scratch. Good luck and have fun!

Left pocket removal

Hello from the Far East, I know that what follows is not relative to the pocket removal but the screws that are under the side trim are different lengths and the shoulders are different so i take a marking pen and start at the top and make one mark and then two marks on the head of the next bolt etc. Yes , i know that these bolts do not have to be removed to extract the pocket but just in case you have to go further a little dab will do it. Thanks

Auswing recently suggested to then just close the cover with
the pins in place under the cover (the center pushed in)
... then just lift the whole box out and no worries about dropping the little pins,
they're locked underneath the cover.

I tired it ... works good.

FYI.....
Prior to '06 you can't do that! The door/lid doesn't come out with the box. :(
