Removing the silver accents?

I'm wanting to put some black engine paint on all the silver accents/covers on my 919 and throw them in the oven. I came to this one circled in the picture and I get an uneasy feeling things are going to fall apart if I remove them.

The top right bolt in the circle runs through the width of the bike. Can this piece be removed without any ill effects such as the motor falling on my headers?

so on that side (the throttle side), you should be able to unbolt it rather easy... 2 main bolts hold it on, then under the cap is the nut for the swing arm bolt.

The clutch side however has the main swing arm bolt running through it and you would have to fully remove the swing arm bolt to pull it off... which isnt too hard you will just have to support the bike properly.

Guess I'm looking at some bike mounts. I could use some roughneck ingenuity and hang a chain to the roof of the garage but there's a reason we never get nice things on a drilling rig.

Just stick 1/2" ratchet extensions in there in place of the bolt. A piece of rebar, axle bolt, you can use almost anything.

and for props if you have two jack stands there are great spots just inside of those "silver accents" to jack the bike up onto.
