The fairing seems to be really tight around the indicator but apart from that section everything else is loose.
After watching Iblees video on how to remove the fairings

So I'm trying to remove the left fairing and I'm stuck. There's some sort of retainer clip that holds the middle cowl together to the lower cowl. It's in there pretty good. If I apply too much force, it feels like I'm going to snap something.

You have to push down on the yellow tab to make it release. I used a screw driver and just pressed down on it. A bit tricky but just try it theres no need to pull hard.

I tried that earlier and it wouldn't budge. It's pushing down the whole plastic layer with it. Do I have to release it by itself first or am I pushing down on it as I'm pulling out the lower part of the cowl?

I just put my hand inside the fairing and pushed the tab out from inside. Mine pops out fairly easy.

Don't pull from out side, push it out. I didn't push down on it like victorberr said, I just put pressure from inside and out it popped

So push out on the yellow tab? Does it come out with the fairing or is it a separate piece that snaps on and off?

Whoever designed these fittings at Honda must've been having a bad day.

I have my fairing off atm as i'm trying to respray my bike.

This is the yellow tab when removed




don't push down etc, just push from inside in the direction of the hole. It will pop out . Have you made sure you have removed all the other fastenings?

and here is the place the whole tab comes out of



Nothing special about it in my opinion. Don't pull it, push from inside

Thanks for that pic. Yeah all the bolts and pins are out. I'll try again tomorrow, frustrated enough for today. Time for a beer.

I'll try to push it out from the inside but there's some tight maneuvering on the left side fairing. I need someone with tiny hands!
