Bought a used 07 1KR last week. Hoping that some one can help me out. Trying to change the oil and can't figure out how to operate the plastic screws/clips which hold the lower fairing together? I have succeeded in rounding several of the phillips screw heads out and getting my blood pressure up, any thoughts? Thanks in advance...

Get a lil baby flat head and pry 'em open.

It won't hurt.

If you can get your hand on the inside of the fairing, you can push the middle out as well. Then you should be able to get the little bastards out.

Personally, I hate those damn things.

I'll make all my future bikes trackbikes because of them.

another method that might work is to turn them about a quarter turn counter-clockwise, with as little pressure as possible. that SHOULD make the head pop up and then you can pull it out.

If you are talking about the ones that have a little circle in the center, push the middle circle in and they come right out. To put these back in make sure you push the middle from the bottom through the top and stick out a little. Put the fastner back in the hole and push the center until flush with the head of the fastener.

If they are the ones that screw some but not all the way, screw them out as far as possible with feeling like it jumps threads and pull it out.

If it is the ones that screw all the way down, unscrew as much as possible and keep tension on the fairing close to the screw while unscrewing.

Can you leave the two pieces of the lower together like you can on the '04-05? After messing with those things a couple times, I just take the whole lower off as 1 piece.

That sounds like a great idea, I'll definitely try that when I get home today. Those little bastards can be a pita.
