Trunk Box Cover  (N/A)

I'm old and forgetful, so I'm asking a question I should know the answer to, but have forgotten.  Is it really necessary  to remove subject Trunk Box Cover in order to be able to remove the left and right Frame Covers?  The manual says it's necessary, but my foggy memory tells me I thought that it was a waste of energy last time I was in there..  After this wekend, the too-cool-for-me-to-want-to-ride temps are due, so it's time to assess the TowPac mounting situation and come up with a fix before the infamous bracket failure occurs.

Bill, Sonny?

Re: Trunk Box Cover  (Canada)

What do you mean by trunk box cover, under the seat?. You have to remove the 2 small ones at back where the tail lights are and the grab rails I think.  Wayne

Like Seatec said, the bottom and top covers at the back and the hand rails. Then they come off. Right one is easier as you dont have the gas filler tube.

Looked mine over a few min ago and everything still feels solid. It may just be a fluke that two of us have had the problem. I have been puhing it more in turns lately also.

I wonder how many have tow-pacs on their 650's.

Re: Trunk Box Cover  (N/A)

I'm just looking at page 9-16 of my manual:

TRUNK BOX COVER

Remove the battery cover (1)

Remove the starter relay (2) and coupler (3) from the battery cover

Remove the battery

Remove the trunk box cover (4)

and then on to the Frame Covers [side panels].

It just seems like a lot of work for nothing, but I'm wondering if I'm missing something

I didn't do all that but it probably would make it easier. If you don't remove the oher you have to do a little finigling at the front of the seat.

Re: Trunk Box Cover  (United States)

Wayne,

Are you speaking from experience?  Would you mind explaining how you did it for me?  I just got my TP kit and getting ready to install it on my 650.

I have the optional passenger backrest installed and it will be a BEAR if I must remove that rear panel in order to get the side panels off.

Yes you have to remove the passanger back rest, thats not hard , just got to know how it comes off, then the rear panels to get to side pannels, I have had mine off a few times. There is  a plastic cover over the screws for the rear back rest, just pop it off and you will see the screws. I cant explane where they are as I sold mine 2 yrs ago.    Wayne

Tip if you need to remove passenger backrest on K6 Exec

Postby sonny1639 on Sat Sep 23, 2006 15:49 15

Last night I was removing the passenger backrest to add a Givi top case.
I removed the 2 retainers at the lower front of the backrest then the plastic cover.

The backrest cushion is actually held with 2 friction fit plastic holders. If you grab the bottom of the cushion and pull it toward the front of the bike the friction holders will release and it will pivot up where you can lift it off the top bar. The thing is tight and takes a good bit of pulling. Then it is an easy matter to remove the 4 screws holding the back plastic making room to remove the metal bracket from the bike.

I looked at the service manual and couldn't figure that out till I removed about half the staples and removed the top two screws only to discover It still wasn't coming off.

Hope this will save someone some trouble in the future.
