    Need help with FZ 09 tank panels

    I am wanting to replace the tank panel with some others I have found but am having trouble with the secondary panels(not the intake looking ones but the small ones about where your knees are). Do they just pop off with enough force or is there a little clip or something I am missing? Really I'm just scared to break em.

    Pretty sure they're two sided taped on. Heat gun or a blow drier or just be easy on them.

    Yep, they are held on with very strong two sided tape and you basically pull them off......than prepare to do a lot of cussing getting whats left of the residue/tape off of the tank itself, lol

    3M makes adhesive remover that works wonders, check it out. It smells like oranges too, lol
