Lightbulb Top Shelter - Removal/Installation DIY Article - CBR1000RR08

I have prepared this Do It Yourself (DIY) article:

link: Top Shelter, Removal/Installation - CBR1000RR8 DIY

for my 2008 CBR1000RR Fireblade on which I have resently made valve clearance inspection.

This is the fifth DIY article in a series of articles describing how to make valve clearance inspection. The first four articles are:

- Air Intake Cover - Removal/Installation
- Upper Inner Cover - Removal/Installation
- Middle Cowl - Removal/Installation
- Radiator, Removal/Installation

Further articles are under preparation.

You are invited to give errata and/or suggestions to the article via this review thread.

... Fred

Never thought this would need a DIY but I guess if you're already making all those other ones

Gonna be a long process of writing all these to do a valve check if you're going into this much detail on the tank shelter, but props

It's great that your making DIY's, just use your time making them on the tasks that are actually difficult.

Hi shleeve and mtips18,

removing and installing the Top Shelter is indeed a walk in the park - at least when you have once done it. But there is always a first time for everybody, and at that moment you never know if there are any stumblestones in the park.

And I intend to make this on-line service manual complete - not leaving anything in the dark, thus making it possible for the non-profs to see excactly what they are in fore.
The Honda Shop Manual is excellent for profs, but it does leave many important steps untold.

I have just added the two next DIY articles in the series and more are comming soon.

... Fred

Hi Bazz - I have not tried to remove the upper cowl yet, but looking in the Honda Shop manual it seems simple enough:

1) Remove: middle cowls, upper inner covers, windscreen, rearview mirrors.
2) Disconnect connectors: 20p black, 8p black.
3) Disconnect vacuum hose from one-way valve.
4) Remove upper cowl from frame grommets.
5) Disconnect connectors: horn, 20p grey.

Installation is reverse order of removal.

:-) ... Fred
