Premium Member ULEWZ Posted January 18, 2015 Premium Member Share Posted January 18, 2015 My project today is to add magnets under the forward plastic gas tank fairing so I can use my magnetic tank bag. The lower part of the tank is metal and the tank bag will be partially secure there, but I found it starts to fall down during spirited riding, thus the reason for this mod. I wrote this from memory after the job was completed, so please advise if I have any steps reversed or missed removing some fasteners. Note: this modification was deemed a partial fail in a further post as the tank bag did not stay secure going fast. Here we go: 1A. Trial fit your magnetic tank bag and use tape to outline were you will place the magnets. 1B. Remove the two allen screws holding the black cover. 2. Remove the four quarter turn fasteners (2 each side) holding the black cover on, and remove the black cover. 3. Remove the two screws holding the aft part of the red tank cover. 4A. Remove the forward lower fairing screw, one each side, and remove the red tank cover. 4B. Remove the two quarter turn fasteners (both sides) from the front of the lower fairings: 5. Remove the aft lower fairing bolt (one each side), disconnect the electrical connector (1 each side), and pop off the lower fairing (plastic pin goes into rubber grommet). 6. Remove two allen screws and one nylon fastener, from both sides. 7. Get yourself some magnets and glue, I sourced from HomeDepot. 8. Glue the magnets to the underside of the plastic pieces, I used six magnets each side. Let dry, and reverse the order to put it back together noting all the tabs and slots that need to re-engage, such as the lower fairings at the bottom each side, and the forward part of the upper black piece, both sides.
