I've had red temp warning light on so decided to bleed cooling system as I might not done it properly after reasembling the engine. There is plastic cover on the radiator that blocks access to the radiator cap. No big deal as it's only held in place by three bolts but to get to the bolts and to have space to move that stupid cover out of the way whole botom panel has to be removed. To save the time doing it again in the future I took my trusty dremel and cut the bastard thing.

. That's my old Honda scv 100 lead. Three bolts to get all the plastic out of the way. Whole seat and plastics around it were on the hinge. But pcx is just doing my head in.
