I take it you mean the fuel door?

Remove the V shaped panel that sits just in front of the saddle. This will expose the first screw. Once it is removed I believe the door and hinge will come off. If not you're half way there and should be able to figure it out.

If you open both the gas door and glove box you can pull that panel up. Here is a video of what I'm talking about to be more clear.

Then thinking back I think you have to remove the console where the radio is too. Here is a video for that. You don't have to fully remove it. Just enough to lift it and allow you to reach where you need.

I did this so long ago I may have to just do it to remember exactly what I did.

Basically you have to pull the gauge cover then the mirror and the cover. Then the dash pannel. Then the cable for the door and then the top pannel that the fuel door is mounted to. Be Careful don't force the panels

if that can be I wanted to know if it was easier to disassemble it but I see that it is necessary to dismount half motorcycle. Thank you for all.
