2010 zx10r fairing help? - January 14, 2011, 06:54 AM

I've taken off fairings from a few different bikes and of course it's been trivial. But my zx10r is frustrating me in terms of replacing a very mildly rashed center fairing. Owner's manual says nothing, my 08 service manual is not clear to me at all, and when I take all the fasterners off the fairings just seem immovable.

Anyone available in the manassas area to help? I can bring the bike to you; just point me in the right direction. Ain't getting anywhere loookin on the web. I can throw in your fav case of beer or 5th of liquor or shit even some ammo lol.

Center fairing? You mean lower?

If that is the case, once you get the bolts and plastic plugs out, you have to rotate it away from the bike. There are tabs that interlock two fairings together, and you have to angle them to get them out.

Q-

It sounds kinda like when we did the oil change on the Honda/Yamaha, we had the same issue at first. I think LT has it right. We can take a look this weekend when I get back if ya want. Sunday maybe?

I started taking off the fairings to my 09 ZX6R to get it race ready and GEEZ- I can't believe how convoluted that shit is now! Musta had some Honda guy switch over to Kaw and design the fairings.

Hmm, this helps some man, thank you.

For the 2010 model, it's in the 'cowling lower' category but is the center fairing part #55028g.

Brandon -- yeah man let's do it. You work Monday? That or Sunday could work in the afternoon.

lol all..I knew I was in for it when I took the seat off the kawi compared to how easy it is on my CBR. It's not that dramatic a difference, but just needlessly complicated.
