Yes, you need to remove or at least loosen up the rear cowl. I believe there were 4 bolts under the passenger seat and then the black "push in center" rivets and it's loose. Not a hard task. Good luck.
Yes you do have to remove the tail along with the seat the two small side plastic and the passenger pegs and you will have to unattach the rear seat locking cable forget exactly the order but i know you have to do all of that its not to bad put my bolt on akras on in about 45min
