Evening all, lovely weather.

Ok got myself a carbon front sprocket cover, to replace the standard one.

Anyway popped in garage tonight, 2 screws, loosen old cover, annnnnddd...

Argh..

How hard.?..!

Ok gave up cant remove old cover, is there a trick here I am missing ? Gear linkage in the way, anyone got any tips for a crap office chair mechanic like me ? Which part of linkage should I remove ?

Tks in advance.

Like you this happened to me. I finally did it the other day, you really don't have to remove anything, but I did loosen the clutch lever linkage.

Its more of an orientation thing to get it out. The nature of the stock cover allows it to bend pretty good without harming it. Basically just force the thing out and it will pop out. Getting the carbon one on was way easier, no forcing required as compared to the original.

You might have to loosen the clutch slave cylinder. Not much but enough so the cover will slip out.

there's a tab you can cut off

seems I cut off what I felt was an unnecessary tab, maybe a wire harness guide? anyway I cut off a piece and its much easier now

I just kept gently juggling it till it came out ... The CF one went on really easy as it's a slightly different shape.

If you get it in the right position taking care to make sure the clutch switch cable isn't snagged on it, it really will come out with a little force all in one piece. I was apprehensive too, but it took all of a few seconds once I got fed up trying to see if I could get it to "fall right out"
