I know this may be a silly question to you guys, but I will ask anyway. My last Boss was a '97, and it was easy to remove the seat, unsnap the fiberglass side panels, etc. to get to the fuses, tranny, etc. On the '02 model, I am getting ready to change the fluids before a Florida Keys trip next week, and I have yet to remove any of the panels. It has a sissy bar/luggage rack attached also. What is the order the body panels need to be removed? Am I correct in assuming that the 2 bottom screws holding the sissy bar/luggage rack (just under the seat) need to be removed first, then the body panel that the seat is attached to, then the side panels? Do the panels come off when the screws are removed with nothing else holding them in place? I know this may be a stupid question, but it will be the first time I have removed the panels, and I don't want to remove anything that I don't have to. Thanks guys!

Hi Mike,
I can't answer your question, because my bike is older than yours. But I learned there is NO such thing as a stupid question, only stupid answers!
I could have had a brand new $100 bill that was pinned to a corkboard, but none of us in the class were able to ask "a dumb question" , needed to collect it. Someone will be able to help ya. Jeff

Mike,
I have an 02'. Yes, 1st the two holding the sissy bar under the seat, and the one holding the luggage rack to the seat pan. Then the seat pan, then the side panels. Just the screws hold all the panels on. :)

Panels

And, in case you haven't seen them, Marv at Chopper City (and others I'm sure) have chrome fastners to replace the Allen head screws that can be removed and installed with your fingers. No need for a tool of any kind.

Mike,
Neil is absolutely right! I have those screws and they are MUCH easier then the button head allen screws! Try them, you'll like them! :D
