How to remove right front cowl (2006 R6)? - January 15, 2008, 04:33 PM

Okay, the no-cut frame sliders are on (thanks to everyone for their input on that).

On to the next thing...

I'm trying to replace the right (throttle side) front cowl that goes around the right headlight on my 2006 R6.

I figured out how to remove every fairing fastener attached to the cowl except the one tucked behind the headlight assembly.

How do I move the headlight assembly out of the way to get to that last fastener so I can pull off the existing right front cowl?

I looked through the service manual but the cowling disassembly process didn't show me how to deal with the headlight assembly issue.

Many thanks in advance.

When I put my R6 back together (it was wrecked when I got it) I found the only way to get it all back on the bike was to put nose together, bolt it to the fairing stay and then put the entire unit on the frame.

Hopefully you'll find a better way to go about it. There were lots of wires to disconnect/reconnect.

Here are a bunch of pics of the bike in various stages of tear-down... maybe one is of use?
