Hi, can any one tell me how to get at the back of the front indicators on my zx9r 1996 (B3), I cant seem to see how the air intakes come off, cant access the rear of the indicators without removing, I've got the Haynes manual and if I'm reading it right it seems that you have to remove the top fairing, if this IS the case then I aint going to bother, can anyone tell me if I can get the air intakes off without removing the top fairing, thanks guys, John (kneedown)

when i did my zx6... i un-screwed the front fairing ( 3 or 4 screws vertically ) and the other securing bolts and screws so the fairing side is free and movable then i undid the top screw on the air intake cover and that cover just pulls up and off, you are left with the main intake ducts / pipes ( whatever you wanna call 'em ) i just managed to pull them back toward the tank with a wiggle and cuss, and that gave me enough room to get my hand up and in to locate the adapter covers and just enough room to get the spanner on the nut to do 'em up, it's a pain in the ar5e but depends how bad you want to get the standard monstrocities off lol, good luck matey just count to 10 a lot and have a couple of cold one's handy from time to time.not sure if this helps any.

hi mate,
hope i can help i had this problem with my B3 (sadly departed) there is a plastic cover that screws behind the metal top fairing stay, remove these, they also have a plastic bayonet lug that locates into the true air intakes pop these out carefully (they are like fairing lugs)

then on mine there were two o ring compression fasteners that you unscrewed that popped off the front fairings, these can then be unscrewed from the frame or popped off depends which model it is giving access to the little winka's

the problem is the access is tight down there, its doable without taking the fairing off but its a pain, have you thought of going in through the bottom, take the belly pan section off and go up??

i stripped the front fairing off and what a "oops" pain it is, it has two air boxes, one under the tank one in the nose cone which need to be removed with all the pipes etc, was the most complicated thing ever, also if you done locate the intake pipes right it can cause it too run lumpy.

not to put you off but, the nose cone is a big heavy thing with all the fittings in it, the actual plastics can barely hold everything together i put mine down and it split between the headlight and the side fairing which cost me loads to put right, be very care full with the thing

good luck hope this helped a little
