Removing F4 Mirrors

Hello,

I am looking at removing the mirrors on my F4. Anyone done this before? Just want to know how to go about it. Do I need to get anything to hold fairing down after removal of mirrors?

Thanks

Jorge

-Take the nose off
-Unscrew the two tiny screws at the fairing stay bottom to free the wire contacts
-fish the oval contact plate through the fairing stay hole
-Unband the wires behind the fairing stay with the black rubber bands
-Unscrew the two allen screws holding the mirror to the fairing

If you want to ride the bike with the mirrors off you'll have to use screw/nut combo or zip ties to keep the top of the fairing attached to the fairing stay.

just as james described. it's kind of a pita to align it all when you put them back on. have someone help by holding the mirrors while you align with the faring stays, faring holes, and bolts.

Always seemed odd to me that they made it dead simple to take the entire nose off, but a PITA to take the mirrors off.

Given how quirky that interface can be once you start irritating it I suspect they had to overengineer it's stability?

stability?
those mirrors are so short and useless, they should just be called by their real purpose...



front turn signals.

No mirrors are ok altoon....Just lift your arms and look underneath!

Another guy down here was cursing the mirrors also - he hadn't even thought about the lifting of the arms trick!

If they stuck out wide enough to be any good it would definitely spoil the look of the MV.

Remember it is Motorcycle Art!!

Maybe just get a rear view camera and screen and we wouldn't need any mirrors at all!
