Airbox Question

One of the plastic/mesh airbox covers is loose on my 910R (left side). Didn't see anything in the manual - where are those tightened? I checked the old airbox mod threads but it wasn't clear from the pictures. Could it be tightened by removing the key guard? Or does it involve removing the tank? I'm sure it's relatively simple, but thought I would ask for help before any minor dismantling. Thx in advance

They tighten from underneath with very small allen head screws.
You either have to take the tank off or have someone hold the tank up.

Ask Anucci also, he did it.

Be careful not to lift too high and stress the plastic fuel fittings. You should be able to lift up and then tilt back.

Thanks Jack...I'm thinking if I can get a little daylight/space it should be easy. When I was checking it out earlier I noticed a very small screw that appeared to be underneath the airbox cover...but access is blocked by the frame. If that's not it...I'm sure it will be readily apparent when I lift the tank. Appreciate the help

yep, there's an e-bay auction for a tank that shows their location. I'll try and post here

You can see the three on each side at various angles.

At least one is loose...toward front. It's those damn pipes...I'm so rev-happy everything's going to rattle off the bike

Charles, if you don't get it done tonight and can wait for the weekend, I would be happy to stop by and help.

Jack...that's really helpful...definitely the front screw on the left side. Pictures are key. Tony, also appreciate your offer. I will give it a shot, but might take you up on that. I guess it's fairly clear that I don't know what I'm doing , so, rather than damage the fuel lines/fittings I may bail if the operation doesn't go exactly as planned
