Remove seat from the motorcycle.
Using a 12mm socket, you will need to remove the rear fuel tank bolt which is located at the rear center of the tank. Carefully lift up the tank and move it back a few inches. You do not need to disconnect anything from the tank. You may want to place something under the tank, such as a towel to protect it from scratching.
Remove the plastic upper neck covers. Remove the plastic rivet on top of the covers by pushing the middle pin down approximately 1/8 of an inch. Pull the rivet out. When you reinstall the rivet you will pull the center back out 1/8 of an inch and put the rivet back in, then push the pin until it is flush.
Using a Philips head screwdriver, remove the two Philips head screws.
Using an Allen head, remove the two Allen head screws from each side. Then, remove the upper covers by sliding them down and then pulling them off.
Separate the top seam of the two plastic radiator shrouds by pulling on the right side with both hands. Please be aware that it will make a pop sound, but it is not breaking. When reinstalling, the two sides will snap back together.
Remove the two plastic rivets which are at the bottom of the fairing, near the bottom of the motorcycle. Use a flat head screwdriver to pop the center out just enough to pull them off. You won’t need to actually remove the side fairings/shrouds, this just allows enough room to make the installation easier.
Please make sure that the front wheel is completely straight. Carefully tip the radiator shrouds forward and then down so that they are straddling the front wheel and tire by following the instructions below:
There will be a clip (hook) on each side that clips it to the frame. If necessary, use a flat head screwdriver to pop it off the frame. You will most likely need to work each side until it becomes removed from the clip. Be sure to remove both sides before moving it forward as to not put too much pressure on the shroud. Once both sides are unhooked, carefully lower both sides at the same time until they are straddling the front wheel. You may have to flex both sides to clear the wheel.
Remove the stock radiator grill by removing the bolt at the top. Using a 10mm wrench, remove the bottom radiator fan bolt which is located at the back of the radiator near the bottom.
Install your new grill by sliding it underneath the radiator. The grill will install between the radiator and the fan bracket. Once the grill is in place, install the new top bolt which came with your grill, but do not tighten completely.
Install the bottom bolt. Once both bolts are in place, tighten them both.
Reassemble the motorcycle by reversing the instructions that you used to take it apart.
