So annoying

Post  gus on Sun 21 Aug 2016, 9:43 am

From memory the tank removal design is the same on the 600cc as the 1200 cc .
There are two lugs at the back of the tank that foul the rear side covers . They scrape past when you pull the rear of the tank up and scratch the covers when you put it down
because something is catching .The 2 lugs allow the side covers to clip into place . Its a piss poor design .
These lugs


The prongs on my 600 Bandit side covers were missing anyway , so after swearing every time I removed the tank (plenty ) I fixed it .
Mr Angle Grinder took great pleasure in removing them .A little angle piece (hidden by seat ) to hold the side overs in place and its tank on, and off. with no problems .

Shame about the scratches from all the other previous attempts .
