Question about 2006 Suzuki DL 650 V-Strom
....to get a small spot touched up where the paint rubbed off. There seems to be a few fasteners on the cowling (both front and side), that are like small plastic round fasteners, with a small round circular piece in the middle. I can't figure out how to remove these without breaking them? Do I need a special tool? Also, I cant figure out if I also need to remove the frot cowling to get the side off, and iof there are any other body panels that need to be removed......any help or advice is much appreciated.
Those are called "tray clips" If you look at the microfiche at Ron Ayers you can see a drawing that shows where they go, but not how to remove them easily. The center piece snaps into place, but does not come out easily unless you can push from the opposite side. I've had luck putting in a small screw a few turns, then pulling on it. They will pop out with some effort, but don't pull so hard you damage the bodywork. If the bodywork is moving a lot due to your efforts something is wrong.
