From what I've been told it's measure measure measure where the hole is cut in fairing.  Good news is that fairing isn't a over priced piece.

Take your time and double check everything.  It is a pretty straight forward install.

Sounds like a great opportunity to flush your pores - :rotflmao:
I had a medium pore-flushing day yesterday while working in the garage. Man, I wish it was air-conditioned!
I think I went through at least 1.5 gallons of water.
