One last thing.
When you have removed the two screws, and the plastic clips - GENTLY pull the bottom of the side panel away from the bike until the bottom lug pops out of its rubber securing grommet. Then push the whole of the panel towards the front of the bike, to release the panel from the front securing mounting point. If you just pull it away, then you could break off the front lug on the panel, and hey ho - EXPENSE - getting a new panel !!!!
In my original post, I stated that I used 40 ft lbs torquing up the engine mount bolts, which I found were the settings for the VFR1200, as I was unable to find anywhere the settings for the CT. Recently when viewing the mounting instructions from SW Motech, for a CT Engine Guard, where the engine mount bolts have to be removed then replaced - to fit the stay bars for the guard - they stated that the torque settings should be 56 ft lbs !!! ???
EDIT TO ABOVE - No I am wrong - They say 54 NM - which is correct -
for my error.
I cannot remember who, but someone on the forum, has a German Maintenance Manual, from which the correct settings could be obtained, or if you are well in with your mechanic at your dealer, maybe you could get the info from him. Then post it for all ???
There is one hell of an amount of info on this forum, and most aspects have been covered, it is just a matter of trolling through the subjects and posts to find what you require !!
Best of luck fitting the Givi Bars.
PS. Included in the fitting kit are 4 bits of plastic - 2 inch x 5 inch approx - that advertise it is a Givi product and can be clamped to the bars !! Not necessary unless you want to fit them !!
