ignorant question # 43...
The body trim on the sides of the RXT...framing the hood and then running back toward the seat....not the chrome looking fashes...above them.
How difficult is it to remove and replace without damaging?

After you remove the bolts holding the chrome pieces on (i think they're 5.5mm or 7 mm) and then the chrome pieces. I think the rest of the fairings are held on with push clips which are usually better off just being cut and then replaced later.

You can get those push clips at most auto parts store or a local body shop. They're not worth trying to pull out and then save. The bolts for the chrome parts are a little bit of a pain to get out. Take out the fire extinguisher panel and go in through there.

Yeah, I was reaching/looking through that access hole at the inside of the hull. I just couldn't account for all the bolts ect I was feeling on the inside and looking at on the outside.
Just wanted to make sure I wasn't gonna be needing to be gentle here or there.

Most likely your beat up fairing parts are from the cover. Every RXT that comes through my shop with a cover have scratched black fairing. You have to put a undersheet under the cover to stop it. Changing the fairing is a real pain in the ass. The best way is to remove the glove box to get to the bolts. And actually drilling a couple holes in the front storage compartment to access the holes better

Oh, the parts aren't messed up.
Thanks for the tip re going thru the glove box though. I hadn't thought about that angle.
After talking with lafjax I don't believe I'll be adding holes anyhow.
