Hey everyone...gotta a rookie question. When pulling the plastics off of the past two bikes I have had I seem to always break or bend (beyond repair) the plastic snaps that hold the plastic on. :angry: Is their a trick to doing this without doing damage to the plastic pins? I am referring to the ones that hold the tank cover and front fender plastic on.
The last time I pulled mine out -- I stepped on one -- they do not support 180lbs.
There are two types ---
one with a notch -- the trick there is to use a small flathead screwdriver -- pop it up a little on oneside, then from the other.
The other has the "pin" in the middle -- You can push down on the middle with the tip of a screw driver and then lift out.
I personally work from the back if I can... just using your finger...push the pin towards the top--then pop it out.
Your dealer should have those in stock. I bought 2 recently it was like....$1.50
