Anyone know a way to remove the handle on the left fender (circled) on a 1023E/1025R without removing the fender and the fuel tank? Do I have to remove the wheel?
Thanks. Yeah, I saw that in the service manual but noted that it was about removing the fuel tank rather than just the fender. I'm wondering if, as Kylew noted above, I can remove just the fender by unbolting bolt labeled "12" and remove the support labeled "10", along with the floorboard bolts and the rear support bolt and slide the whole fender off leaving the fuel tank in place. The money shot would be if I could access the two bolts labeled "11" directly and just remove the handle that way. I don't mind pulling the wheel. I have to re-torque the wheel bolts anyway.Probably not the information you want to hear. I've attached the Left Fender R & R, from the service manual.
