Hey guys,

I'm trying to locate a video of how to remove the fairing (part facing you). I can't seem to find an all-inclusive online. I researched here and everything points me to look at the manual which I don't own. I realize I should get one, but that doesn;t do me any good today. Does anyone know a video I can watch to help me do this?

Thanks
Woody

You referring to the top shelter with the gas cap in it? that's the part that faces the driver. If so, this video on YouTube is for an air filter but covers the tops shelter removal. The video will not play here it seems, click on the link to watch it on YouTube.

Thanks so much! I saw this once before but couldn't locate it again.... I figure I wasn't using the word "air filter". Thanks!

I'm actually making progress just trial and error doing it on my own but there's some stuff I just can't figure out how to remove unless I'm doing it in the wrong order. This is the ticket!

Ok so here it is.....

Fuel tank Automotive lighting Automotive tire Motor vehicle Vehicle


First off those underneath radio clips were buggers to get off!!!

I'm guessing the wing came with a "built in CB radio", is that correct?
I found two CB radio antennea under my fairing.

Glasses Gas Eyewear Cable Automotive tire



I know that the previous owner installed a top mount CB hence why I had to replace the fairing. But having a second CB antennea under there leads me to believe that there was an original unit. Is this unit of any worth\good, or should I just remove this wiring? If not where the heck do I refasten the original antennea? I didn't see any jack for it. I do see the CB antennea on the back of the bike and it looks factory but I'm not sure if it was an add-on.

I also found another wire down there:

Hood Automotive lighting Automotive tire Tire Bumper


With a grommet on it and that side fairing box had a hole in the bottom. Did this used to be some sort of a factory power jack in that box? Did the '01 Wings come with that? It connects to this little white connector inside the fairing

Automotive tire Hood Motor vehicle Vehicle Automotive exterior


I also have that red connector coming out of that bunch of wires that goes to nothing. Does anyone know what that connector is supposed to connect to?

I also traced this unknown button to being connected into the CB antennea line.

Tire Automotive tail & brake light Hood Automotive tire Automotive lighting


Someone was thinking it was a "push to talk" button for the CB. It seems that way.

Other than that, that's how far I've gotten so far. I want to figure this wiring stuff out before I close this all back in with the new parts.

Thanks,
Woody

And one more question....

While this is all apart I'm going to tackle the air cleaner as it seems like the appropriate time to do so. Is there anything else I should do\check since this is all open?

No they are the ones that go into the airbox above. Just behind to the left and right of the steering stem.

They are only held in by two Phillips screws. One for each snorkle

Good luck buddy! I got mine disassembled for paint and I'm having hard time remembering where everything came off from the bike!😝

I want to ride but, it's been a mother! My memory isn't as good as I thought...

To respond to your questions about a factory CB. All the 1800s left the factory with the wiring for the Honda CB (this includes all of the controls on the left handlebar), but did not include the CB (and separate antenna, if desired). Because of this, you will find a few connectors that don't actually connect to anything. If an OEM CB was added to the bike, it would live under the false floor in the tail trunk.
