Isn't that a brilliant video David.  I stumbled across this pre-LC video a couple of months ago, watched it, then removed the Tupperware from my 2012 model without any trouble, replacing it all was a breeze.  Where the various 5mm diam x various length screws all fit is no longer a nightmare after watching the MAX BMW presentation.

That's a great video more like that is what I need for my 2014 he did make it look easy. First I need to buy myself a torx set.

Question do many people remove the panels for cleaning the bike? I should imagine it would be necessary if you was winterising (is that a word?) and covering the bike in ACF 50?

I don't remove the panels for routine cleaning, most areas are fairly accessible on the Twin Cam.

Yes, when having the Bike treated with ACF-50, I remove the panels before the guy does his magic.

This thread shows some photos of the ACF-50 process:- http://www.1200rt.com/index.php/topic,1 ... ml#msg6426

Anyone know of any vids on LC2014? I think now would be a good time for me to start learning about my bike and how to keep it good. It will not be ridden again for about 8 weeks so it does seem like the right time to learn some stuff.
