    What is the Trick...

    I'm installing a GIVI bash plate and I am having trouble accessing a bolt (pic attached) to install a mounting bracket. Does anyone have the trick to removing the plastic cover on the right hand side that says "Dual Clutch Transmission"? I'm worried I'll break a fastener if I pull any harder.

    Thanks,

    Frustrated with the GIVI bash plate installation, I stepped away for a couple hours and returned to answer my question. Three bolts must be removed to remove the cover.

    This must be the cheapest (feeling) (plastic) part on the bike...  :006:

    Once the cover was removed, accessing and removing the bolt to install the Givi bash plate bracket was easy. I took photos of the Givi install and will post them in another thread.
