Installing front fairing
on: March 31, 2019, 02:02:49 AM
I removed the front fairing for some electrical mods. I tried to install it back but I have some problem with the two rubber grommets; I failed at inserting the fairingís protrusions in the grommets.
In order to succeed, looks like I would need to strongly tap on the fairing/headlights but I think I could break something.

Any tips please?

Iím thinking at soapy water on the grommets but maybe thereís a better trick...

FWIW, soapy water did it quite easily...
Thanks for your tips guys!
