    How to remove front / side fairings ('09 Shiver GT)?

    I have searched far and wide, and cannot find instructions or a guide anywhere... it's driving me nuts, as I need to get the fairings off to get the tank off as part of removing the right frame side panel (dropped and has the dreaded broken footpeg bracket lug...). Neither the owner's manual or workshop manual are of any help...

    It looks like I've got most of the screws out, but the fairing side panels won't shift - is there a 'hidden' screw somewhere behind the nose fairing? If so, how do I get the nose fairing off?

    HELP!

    I used to have a Shiver GT. Great bike!
    The faring is straight forward, but you do need to find all the screws. Check in and around the glovebox.
    From memory, the nose faring doesn't need to come off.
    Does this help?

    Frodo - that does help, thanks - I couldn't find those instructions in any manual I looked at.

    EDIT: Nailed it, thanks guys... the 'hidden' bolts are the ones at an angle inside the rear of the 2 'gloveboxes'!
