In trying to gently remove my side plastic panels from the bike I somehow managed to rebreak the front loop tab on one side and freshly break it on the other. The panels are much easier to remove on the V2 vs V1 however, the tabs need to be built much stronger and more robust. Anyone else have this issue? Going to try to reform tabs with my Plastex Plastic Repair Kit.
I always lubricate all of the posts that are pushed into the rubber connectors with heavy wheel bearing grease. That helps tremendously when I'm taking the fairings off and on including the one at the front that has the tab ahead of it. Mine is a 2012.
