i recommend not doing it unless you're a very patient person. it's easier when you know how to do it, but it's still a pain in comparison the the previous models. the entire ram air portion has to come off with it. once the fairing is actually loose, you have to disconnect an electrical connector as well as a vacuum line. there's a panel on the inside that has to come off as well as the panel underneath the nose. not a fun affair, but if anyone is planning on tackling it, i can try to give some pointers. i was expecting it to be fairly simple like my '06, but not so much!
