@Wintersdark, thanks for the great "how-to".  I made it sticky so it will stay on the front page and be easy for people to find.

Thanks for this!! I find these write-ups substantially more useful over videos. Nice clear pictures and comments. Made getting my snorkel out a 10 minute job!

Thanks!  I'm in much the same boat - I really prefer to have pictures I can reference while doing a job without worrying about scrobbling back and forth, and dealing with bad camera work/lighting/rambling guy/poor focus/etc. 

*Good* videos are ok, but very difficult to make requiring multiple people and expensive equipment.  

This is the magic of forums though.  Much easier to archive this sort of stuff.

I don't know about the newer model, but on the <2017 fz07 you don't need to remove the fairings to remove the snorkel. You just remove the rider's seat and pull the snorkel towards the handlebars till it comes loose.

In hindsight you are probably correct. I wasn't sure how it was mounted so I removed the cover to make sure nothing was clipped in. Unless you have  a bendable screwdriver you need to lift the tank to get at the screws. Turns out it was just seated using the molded rubber. Could have just pulled it out.

This just saved my ass big time. I’m super familiar with removing the old style bodywork from watching Jake the snake and turbo Twinkie a few dozen times. 
 

I went to yank my ecu today and realized I actually had no idea how to do it. Then landed here. 
 

pretty dope I got the ecu out removing *literally* 4 screws and took about 5 mins. Big improvement in the design over the old style body. Dropping it in the mail Monday, can’t wait... it’s gonna be a long week of not riding and sweet anticipation
