Question 2 left over screws!!!


I took the fairing off to:
- replace plugs
- replace coolant
- replace air filter
- replace oil and filter
- add lighting


So after I get it all buttoned up, I have two philips 1/2" black self tapping screws. I originally thought airbox, but the two for the back of the airbox were in and longer. They gotta be from the fairing somewhere, but I don't friggin' know where!!!

They're probably the screws that go in the vents of the black front cowling body.

There is a screw towards the front of each side fairing that often gets missed.

Hi,
I just did my air-filter yesterday and came up with a very simple solution to return the fairing screws to their proper location:
Draw a picture of the side of the fairing.
Place the screws in small circles as to their locations.
Trust me, this saves time and frustration.
