I could not find much on the net about this so I thought I’d take a few pictures and post them… The operation should take less than an hour, taking your time and cleaning the parts as you go These are the tools you’ll need: Phillips screwdriver, 10mm spanner and 5mm Allen key.
First thing is to remove the windscreen (easy), then the fairing side tops as shown here. They lift upwards to free themselves from the central part:
Next, remove the central piece, held by two Phillips screws:
The bike will look like this:
With the 10mm spanner, you should be able to unscrew the two bolts that hold the mirror:
Hope this helps!

One year ago, Ana Paula called me home early to bring Héloïse to hospital as she had pain in her foot. She still associates her foot pain to her long stay in hospital and the never ending treatment.
Hopefully, one year from now, the treatment will be finished, her hair will have regrown to more girl-looking size, and we will all take a deep breath. Then one day she will know that it was not just foot pain.
Thanks to the Lions Sport Action and their partner Disneyland Paris, we went to this wonderful park beginning of this month. The children and parents had so much fun!!! There are some pictures of Héloïse and Ana Paula in the slide show on the Lions page, in particular on the last slide.
This has been an unexpected and wonderful escape to our every-day routine of the last months, so thanks to all those who made this happen, especially Mr Guy Matelot.
That’s it, everybody went back to school. Or should I say schools? Pierre is doing kayak and saxophone while Héloïse is restarting dance and starts musical awakening.
Héloïse has decided that she could ride her bike without training wheels, so she did! Now she dreams of swimming with her brother which should be possible tomorrow as she had her stitches removed today.
She’s also looking forward to going back to school
It’s been more than a week that Héloïse had her septic shock, and she just went out today of the hospital. Her dream of swimming in the sea is not at reach yet as she is still to have her stitches removed where the catheter used to be
I feel a bit sad for her, but it’s so good to have her home again, and without catheter at last!
So Tuesday was going to be the day Héloïse would free herself from her catheter. And indeed it has been. But after a black Monday when she started vomiting, got up to 40°C of temperature and down to 8/3 of blood pressure!
Very bad infection indeed that will keep her in hospital for a week to fully treat it, when she was dreaming of swimming in the sea with her big brother. Despite all that courage that amazes us every day, she got very sad, and I almost cried myself while hugging and kissing her.
But yesterday she was better and at night we played a lot. We slept late, hand in hand, and the prospect of getting out of intensive care today to go back to her quarters in Hôpital L’Archet makes her day. At least we saw her little body react quickly which shows that her cells are in order.
Thankfully my parents had come to give a hand with the expected busy routine. They ended up looking after the two boys, food and more. Strange birthday for my father!
This is excellent news: Héloïse’s primary treatment is now finished has she just had her myelogram done. She should hopefully be starting her maintenance chemotherapy tomorrow, for 18 months.
Phase 5 started well and things are going smoothly. Héloïse has now lost her hair and looks like a swollen baby as the previous phase made her eat like there is no tomorrow. But she is calming down now and should get back to her slim features quickly.
