Help needed: how do I remove the upper fan?

I can get two bolts out, but the third one I cannot get to. What else do I need to do? Thanks in advance.

Remove the upper radiator support bolt on the L/H side of the bike and slide the radiator off the R/H grommet,then you can move the whole radiator assembly forward enough to remove that fan shroud bolt.

And unplug the fan from the loom.....

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

OK, thanks. I ended up removing the whole damn radiator. I needed to do it anyway as I had to also take the header off.

Ouch, you don't need to take the rad off to take the headers off either.

I know Brando, I don't know what you mean, all I said was that you don't have to take the radiator off to take the headers off.

Ps. This was not meant as much for Franco, but more for other guys who read his post, and this might not be applicable to the 750's, you need a special little swivel head spanner ot 1/4" ratchet to get to all the exhaust clamp nuts, where on the 1000-1078's it's a lot easier with only 4 central nuts om studs.
