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.:DRide safe.

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)

welcome to the site. don't hesitate to ask questions
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.

Got it done in about 2 hours, thanks to my husband & his patience! It wasn't as complicated as I thought. Thanks for the tips! Only had to cut back directional wires. Posted some B4 pics on Photo Gallery.
