I seem to have overtightened two of the screws that hold what the Honda manual calls the Upper Cover. When trying to remove them now, they just want to spin and not disengage from the rubber/brass nut behind.

HELP! :banghead:

Hi Dave You have two choice,s One remove the screen and you should be able to hold the nuts with a pair of Pliers and unscrew the screws,Or see if you can pull the panel Gently towards you as you unscrew the screws. This happened to me once and the first option worked a treat.fw750x

If it's like my '97 Transalp there is a brass insert in the fairing. On both of my Transalps this has come loose. What I did was apply a slight pressure from behind (you have to get your arm up inside the fairing) whilst turning the screw. The brass fitting will come out... eventually. Then you have to araldite the brass fitting back in to the fairing. I can post some pics if necessary.
