Hello Dutch. It would be extremely difficult to take the shroud off with the bike on the ground, without damaging/scraping the shroud. Jacking the bike up about 5 or 6" would be ideal for much easier and safe removal and reinstall.So the obvious question for k109 and me is.. can the shroud be (easily?) taken off the bike/re-installed on the bike when it's one piece? I've not yet tried it but I highly doubt I would be able to do that with the bike on the ground. Might be able to do it with the bike high enough on a jack. Thoughts?
