  • Removing Fuse Cover...??

    Have the 2005 RS and wanted to take off this cover. The only screw I see is the one right next to the Yamaha tag. I removed the bolt completely but that cover only comes out just a little, but not all the way. Is there another screw somewhere, or do I just need to wiggle it out more? I certainly don't want to force it....Tks!

    The cover has a couple studs that fit into rubber grommets, just wiggle it a bit.

      Okay,...I noticed that when I wiggled it, the same part on the "other" side of the bike, started to move, too. So I kind of wasn't sure what's up...So, I'll just wiggle and pull some more, so the rubber grommets pull out...Let's see how it goes...

        Grommets should stay in place, both covers share a connection (one side in the rubber, other the stud.) they're 14 years old, and grumpy dry, lol. Some finesse and a cold one should do it.

          Sounds like a plan...But, a cold one first, then some finesse

        If you want the center section out also you need to remove 1 screw accessed from the side you show in your pic.

          Thanks, Roadiemort...I kind of suspected something like that, but wasn't sure. Thanks for the heads up!!

        I always spray the grommets and the 'tits' that go into them with silicone spray, to make them go into/come out of, later. When they are dry from lack of being removed, it sometimes seems like you're going to break something trying to remove the panel, and when reinstalling, the silicone spray makes it a lot easier to be sure they are correctly oriented.
