Fairing Removal

Does anybody have some good pics of all the fasteners to remove the left side fairing? I'm afraid I'm going to snap some plastic...

You can pay a visit to my Flickr albums to see my CTX in various stages of disassembly of the front fairing panels. Should be able to zoom in to see attachment points. Some fasteners are inside under the nose in the fork tunnel area. But not all of those are for removing the fairing panels, some are simply to hold sub parts of a panel together. I don't have a service manual any longer to show which those are. I HIGHLY recommend you get a service manual for this kind of work if you don't have one already. Well worth it and will pay for itself in one or two bits of service work.
Flickr album link in my signature. Look for albums for CTX1300 Service, CTX1300 misc stuff, CTX1300 add-ons. Left and right sides are almost the same if not similar.

Thanks for the response Bob! I'll definitely be picking up a service manual for the bike in the near future.

I'm using Tapatalk to view the forum and it doesn't show signatures, can you drop a link to the Flikr album in the message?

EricFromTMW Just my experience with not just the CTX1300 but also a GL1500. Try not to be removing those plastic parts when the bike is cold like having set in a unheated garage. Those plastic pieces can get pretty brittle. Don't ask me how I learned this. But it was an expensive lesson.
Ride safe.
