I have a new to me generation 2 bike. How do I do this?
Yeah that one stumped me for a bit as well. The housing around the cluster actually stays put and the part that the windscreen attaches to comes off. The not so fun part is having to remove the windscreen and then the CRAPTASTIC well nuts (little rubber thingys that the windscreen fasteners screw into. They are a royal PITA to say the least. Once all those are out you should be able to remove the fwd part of the housing. A little hint on removing the well nuts: I found it easier AFTER I ripped a couple of them trying to pull them up and out, is to push them in instead. They do fall in and sometimes drop into a black hole never to be seen again.........Head to Lowes or Home Depot and buy some replacement to also fill all the holes with them so when you want to change the position of your wind screen you will be ready. WHY Kawasaki didn't do that from the factory is beyond me! Expecially when they tout the windscreen is adjustable.... BTW pg 48 of the owners manual is a decent reference. Good luckI managed to get the fairings off thanks to the advice from this forum. Next issue is how to take dash apart; I want to install 12v socket in dash. I've removed the plastic pop rivets but nothing is budging.
