    R1250RT Fairing removal schematics?

    In the process of adding some extras to my new 2019 R1250RT and it would be really beneficial if BMW had schematics for the removal of the fairing pieces that shows all the anchor points and the type of Torx screw bolts required for each location, it's a pain in the rear end to have to bag and tag each panels bolt assortment.

    Has anybody come across schematics for the R1250 bikes or a service manual?

    I tried talking to the service manager at my local dealer, but he said they're not available at this time, you would think BMW must have these for manufacturing.

    Anyone with any insight on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Search this forum for a thread on "Tupperware screws locations" (I believe that's the thread title). Post 18 has a 12-page PDF attached which shows the locations for each and every screw holding your Tupperware in place. Pair that with Jim Van den Berg's excellent YouTube videos on removing the Tupperware to change out the air filter and you'll see the right order and the right order/method to remove each panel.

    Good luck!

    This is for a R1200RT but they're almost identical.

    If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

    I remove the screws from each panel, drop them in a small zip lock back and tape the bag to the inside of the panel. It is fairly obvious which screw goes in each hole.

    That's what I was doing, bag & tag, but it's too time-consuming, pictures tell a thousand words.
