the little black pushpins down low, right behind the front tire, how the hell do you get them out? specifically, the two which are holding the lower fairings to that upside-down-U-shaped black plastic piece which is DIRECTLY behind the front tire. there are two, one to either side pretty much in a straight line back from each front brake caliper.

i cant get the little center bits pried out so that the faster can be pulled outta there, any tricks? i even tried pushing on the center part from behind, no joy =]

Two decent width flat head screwdrivers, one on each side of the pin and twist each so it pry's it out

by that you mean its ok to just pop them outta there entirely without pulling out the little center piece which holds the thing firm when the little center piece is pushed in? hmm

No no no. By pry it out I meant the thing in the middle that spreads it, not the whole thing. WHen you pull the middle thing out enough it should all just slide out

Yes the first time can be a PIA, but I found this trick of doing it and I have had no problems. You HAVE to have one on each side of it otherwise your not prying it outwards, just kinda bending the shit out of it.

pushing the center piece from the back worked. had to hold it a certain way to keep all in alignment and the center piece popped forward which let me just pull it out as normal. if the fairing is not in its normal position, then it being bent outward was exerting force against the fastener making it stupid-hard to pop out the centerpiece. d'oh. spent almost an hour fucking around with two pieces of plastic.

no scratches or damage though, so whatever =]
