Just for the record, this is not my bike and the owner is deceased. I am helping out the widow with a cosmetic repair to the bike so she can sell it. I have no knowledge of motorcycles. The actual model number of the bike in question is: ZX636B.
I am trying to remove the rear flaring and plastic backrest on this motorcycle (see picture). I have already removed the plastic retaining clips from underside. I still cannot get ass end off. There is a push-in retainer behind where I have circled in yellow (one each side). I keep pulling on both sides while trying to pull to the rear of the bike at the same time. No joy. I don't want to break anything. Also, how do I remove the backrest? Should the backrest come off before or after the rear flaring is removed? A little help would be appreciated. I tried Google but I can't find the info I want.
