Hi All
well its all done, brakes, stainless exhaust, new clutch, blah,blah,blah,
with in and out of hospital its taken some time and of course this is where the problem comes in.
I would have thought the panels would have just gone back on they have been stored well , but no, it is taking forever to get them on can I warm them up or has anyone got another idea, please.

#1 use a heat gun to warm up the rubber grommets
......... don't get the plastics too hot!

#2 use a very light coating of vaseline on a Q-tip to grease the grommet

Panels should slip back on easier

Put a zip tie through each grommet, it will retain the grommet and provide just enough "slip" to let the bosses pass through.

A 1500 is like a jigsaw puzzle all the same color and nothing quite fits until you get it just right. Remembering how it came apart helps some.

We completely disassembled a 1989 Trike in November one year, then put it all back together in March/April the following year.

No issues with any panels etc. including installing a brand new fairing.

Don't quite understand why you are having issues with installing the panels etc.....!!

Was this bike involved in a accident/crash??

If not, then there should be no reason why every panel shouldn't go back on, the same way they were removed.

ABS Plastics don't warp/change shape.

Like what Dennis asked "Pictures" or a better description of what is giving you trouble, might help clear the mud?.

that's not fair but good luck to you, I do not understand it either, not as if they are rubber or something
