Yeah, cold and snowy here too. Sugar Bear says welcome to the forum from Indiana. No "tricks" that I know of, just unbolt as you go,seems nothing is never really easy takin care of your ride(to me) when it is worthwhile Enjoy your ride, enjoy the forum.Ride safe.

Ride Safe, Live Long

Thanks for the info, need to get some heat in the hut so I can start tearing her down. Now that I have your attention what about the rear fender, unbolt as you go or ????

I Just had mine painted last month. The only tip that I have is mark all wiring connections as you unplug them, as in turn signals, brake light etc. I have a 2006 V Star 1100. All went smoothly for me. (Pics of my final paint job under Photo Gallery)

Thanks, I won't! Bought one of those heaters to hook up to a propane tank, headed out to the hut to start pulling fenders & tank. It's a lovely 10 degrees here in CNY today. Wishing I'd have done this when I put the bike up but around here you keep it together as long as you can cuz one day it's 10 & the next it could be 50-60 but I don't think it's gonna happen so.......... wish me luck.
