    Remove the bezel ring around the key switch, carefully pry (with your fingers) the upper part of the cover off. Like a shoebox lid. The turn indicator wires and bulbs need to be slid from their sockets as you're doing this. The bottom part is fastened with bolts and will be apparent with the top off.

    I usually undo the nuts under the unit then lift out if I just need it out of the way to get at forks etc. Just get a thin open ended spanner and slide under from tank side. I usually start on the right then left. You don't need to take the nuts right off, just loosen a few turns and slide towards fairing.
    Cheers,

    Hi There,

    I got the rubber dash off but am unable to get it back on. It’s a bear to get the gauges to fit in each pocket. I usually soak rubber products in Hot water to soften them up but the dash is super thick and I’m afraid of damaging the green indicator housings that seem permanently embedded in the dash. I’ve seen several you tube videos on soaking rubber in a mixture of winter green oil and alcohol. Anyone tried this? Also Is the little metal rod that allows the tripmeter to be reset removable? Any help or tips are greatly appreciated!!! Thanks.

    Nomis

    Try a little waterless hand cleaner to get it a little slippery to slide components into place. Use a type without abrasive such as Goop.

    Silicon Spray Lubricant works at providing slippage between rubber components. A little goes a long way and it will not damage the rubber. It is an excellent lubrication, waterproofing, and corrosion protection product but DO NOT put it on electrical connections EVER.

    Good Luck!
