Ok, as promised....... A description of how to remove the complete rear section of a 07/08 Hornet.


1) Remove the seat. (Self explanatory I think and if you don’t know how to do this then I wouldn't bother reading any further. Just take the bike to a dealer)

2) Remove both grab handles using a 6mm allen key. There is one bolt to the top which is visible and one from the side.

3) Remove the two BLACK allen key bolts from the rear of the plastics (as seen in the photo below) using a 5mm allen key and then pull this plastic trim off from the rear. Note. It’s the bit that has Honda written on it.

4) Remove the 2 SILVER allen key bolts from the front of the plastic trim using a 5mm allen key. This will allow the front / side sections of the rear trim to become loose.

5) Now for the tricky bit. The whole rear section comes off in one piece and the last thing holding it on at the rear is 2 plastic clips on the inside, right at the back, just in front of the indicators. To gain access to these you will need a very narrow flat head screwdriver to slide in between the brake light lens and the plastic trim (I used a mag light so that I could see inside). You can then carefully lever the clip to one side whilst gently lifting the plastic trim with the other hand. This needs to be performed both sides of the brake light.

6) Once the 2 retaining clips have been detached from one another the whole rear section lifts up about 6 inches and is now only attached by the cable for the brake light. Disconnect the plug and you will then be able to completely remove the rear section.

7) Please note that the brake light is attached to the rear plastics and will lift out with it.

8) You are now able to remove either indicator by loosening the nut that holds them to the bike and then unclipping the corresponding wiring plug (from memory the orange plug is the left hand indicator and the blue is the right hand indicator)

9) Refitting is a reversal of removal.

Enjoy!
