9. Floor mat removal

9. Floor mat removal

Note: This is probably the easiest step and one that can completed at any point before this .

1. Pry up a corner of the floor mat.


2. You can then just pull the mat up slowly. Make certain that you are applying force as close to the compression fittings as possible to avoid ripping.


3. Repeat for all four mats.


End: You have now finished removing the floor mats.

10. Leg side cover removal

10. Leg side cover removal

1. Remove the fasteners from the passenger foot rests.

(Shown with a bit on the bolts. This will not be on your bike.)

2. Remove the screw holding the rear of the cover to the passenger foot rest.



3. Remove the fasteners from the driver's foot rests.


4. Remove the three screws at the front of the foot board.


5. The front of the cover is held on with a compression fitting. You will have to pull off the cover from the front. If you find that the cover is not coming off at any point once you release the compression fitting, make certain you have removed all the fasteners.


Note: Do not remove the bolts holding the leg side cover to the foot board until you have removed the leg side cover. It will make pulling the cover off a lot more difficult if you do.

End: You have now removed the leg side covers.

12. Starter removal

12. Starter removal

The starter is located on top of the back of the engine.


1. Pull back the rubber boot on the wire connected to the starter and use a wrench to remove the wire from starter.


2. Remove the screws holding the starter to the engine. You may need a wrench to get them started.


(Shown with wrench on screw/bolt)

3. Pull the starter away from the engine case.


3. Turn the starter a quarter turn counter clockwise and lift it out.


Note: It may seem at first like the starter won't fit, but if you take your time and work with it, it will come out.

End: Congratulations you have finished the removal of the starter. Good luck putting it all back together.

Congratulations on producing a new standard for the "How To" section! I'm sure hundreds of people will be thanking you for the many hours it took to put this together. Everyone else: bookmark this one and reference it whenever anyone needs to know to remove any of the body panels!

Re: Starter Removal, 650, and the body panels to facilitate that

Fantastic information here. Followed your step-by-step guide to remove the passenger back rest and the rear panel. Then installed a Givi base plate and my Maxia 52l topcase. Simple once all the 'prep' was done using your photo guide. You get a gold medal from me.

Re: Starter Removal, 650, and the body panels to facilitate that

Thank you for such a detailed and informative guide (with pics, no less). Now I have the info needed to finish tearing down my bike. Others have been great at explaining the details, but without step-by-step pics, I've still been more than a bit wary. Now I feel confident enough to do it!
