    After the nightmare that was my first fairing removal I found this video that might help with others doing it. Wish I had found it first off ... Suzuki should have named the fairing design as 'Pandoras box' as its as hard to open.

    Anyway this is it:

    I found it was a bit easier to run the fuel low and lift the tank when doing this esp when re fitting fairings,
    besides if its oil/filter time may as well clean the air filter.

    I've never had an issue, but I don't remove the fairing to change the oil filter either.

    From memory there was at least one error in the one video.

    Yeah, you can unbolt the bottom and pull the fairing back, to get to the filter.
    I've done it.
    I'm 5'10", small frame, and wear xl gloves.
    You look much bigger than me.
    I don't know how you got your hand and wrist through the fairings. I could just barely.
    It was easier for me to take the fairing off.
    Then again, I've seen gen2s with much more flexible stock fairings than mine. So that could be the difference.
    I also had the grey 08 like yours, so build time would've been close.
