How long does it take to R/R bodywork

I haven't done it on this bike yet (2006), except removed and replaced the tail to install a battery pigtail. Does the rest of the bodywork removal and reinstallation go smoothly? Are there any gotchas I should know about?

I have a set of bodywork I've been delaying installing and I'm thinking about doing it in the next couple days. I want to get an idea of what's ahead of me.

I did see a youtube video, but it doesn't show all of the process, being shown in time lapse mode and from a single angle.

If it is actual OEM Honda bodywork 04-05 or 06-07 then it is about 3 Minutes for each side to get it either off the bike or reinstalled. Just make sure you have a clear line of sight to the bolt holes through the bodywork so you don't cross-thread one of the shoulder bolts when reinstalling.

If it is aftermarket street plastics then good luck and prepare for a battle of wills.

Then I'll prepare for a lot of sweating and cussing.

taking the headlight fairing is a slower process than the rest of the bike. you have to remove the bracket, unplug the gauges, remove the gauges, then remove the headlights. it's just a lot of bolts and screws.

OEM- About a full day and it will never be the same
After market Chinese junk- About a month and that shit will never be right. You'll have zip ties, and any thing else you have lying around to hold that shit on. And make sure you have drill bits and tin snips handy.
Good luck

LoL- well it's been sitting in the box in my garage since September. Nearly everything else is done and it's time to ride.

Ah... don't listen to the Nay Sayers! The aftermarket Fairings are quite good now. I've had a set on mine for years and they went on with no issues at all. I put the factory foam back in and some good heat protection on the lowers and they have never melted either. No zip ties or any other fasteners needed except stock mounting bolts!
