Most info here was taken from a post by Kess…..I simply added a few pics.
There are 7 screws that need to be removed to complete this operation.
Torx 27 and the ratchet of your choice. At least a 6” extension is suggested.
Use a snap-on magnetic ratchet style screwdriver. You don't drop screws and it's a lot easier to reinstall without stripping out the insert.
Optional: If possible, lift bike slightly so that front tire is suspended off the ground as you will be turning handlebars fully in both directions
Prep: Cover Front Fender and Gas Tank to prevent damage
Use old socks to cover spot lights
Step 1: Locate three Torx Bolts on Top/Front section of fairing (Just under windshield) - Loosen but do not
Step 2: While facing front turn handlebars all the way to the right. Use caution and make certain jiffy stand is fully engaged and in a locked position. Locate Inner Fairing bottom left screw and remove
Step 3: locate Inner Fairing left center screw and loosen but do not remove
Step 4: While facing front turn handlebars all the way to the left. Use caution and make certain jiffy stand is fully engaged and in a locked position. Locate Inner Fairing bottom right screw and remove
Step 5: Locate right center screw and remove
Step 6: Locate left center screw and remove
Step 7: facing the front of the fairing remove top three screws – Suggest you remove center one last. Use caution and pull fairing slightly forward and remove windshield.
Note: Use caution that windshield does not fall
Note: Passing lamps will interfere with removal. Covering the lights with old socks will prevent scratching.
Step 8: Reach behind headlight and remove connection with a side to side motion
Option: At this point I chose to leave the fairing in place, speaker installation did not require removal and the fairing was very stable in this position
Step 9: Use caution and remove fairing moving side to side for clearance – Note position of bottom rubber weather proofing
To install fairing:
Step 1: Re connected head light
Step 2: Position fairing in place using caution that bottom weather proofing is in place and insert top center screw and lightly tighten it
Step 3: Insert Inner Fairing left and right center screws and lightly tighten
Step 4: Insert Inner Fairing bottom left and right screws
Step 5: Install windshield and insert remaining 2 top screws
Step 6: Once you are certain nothing is cross threaded tighten all screws…I used a hand driver to prevent overtorqueing and stripping the screws.
Suggestion: Tighten two Inner Fairing center screws first, then the bottom two and then the top front (7 Total)
What if – There have been many instances where the top three screws that hold the windshield on have been over tightened causing the brass insert to be stripped out. Use caution however if you strip the brass insert simply obtain Part# 16585-96 – The replacement part is threaded on the outside and is an easy repair
