How do I remove the plastic neck cover?
Of course it looks simple but before I get in there and start tearing things apart I thought I should ask first. Can I just pull the rightside off or is it all one piece?
Also I plan to put a rocker switch in the cover any other suggestions where to install a switch for lights I put up front?
My other chose is in the chrome cover on the tank up front by oppiste side of the reset button.
Thanks

It is two halves you will need to tank out the tank bolt which is under the front of the seat, then you can slide the tank back and there is a small metal clip you can slide off of the top of the frame neck. This clip holds the two halves together. DON'T LOSE IT. Then once you remove that you will be able to slide each half of the neck cover off. It's really very simple to do and you don't have to take any tank hoses loose or anything just slide back after you take out that bolt. PM me if you have any questions.

Just tossing in my 1/50 of a buck. Just did that and the tank had to slide back to get at it.

GET SOMEONE TO HOLD THE TANK FOR YOU!!!!

I didn't and it slid down to one side denting itself on the handlebar controls along the way. Nice set of scratches surrounding a lovely dent.

Well, not long ago I was crying about the small scratch I put on her. Looks pretty insignificant now compared to this.
