Arrow Schematic for fairing bolt installation on a 2008 R6

This question probably comes up a bit but I would like to get my hands on a schematic diagram for fairing bolt installation for a 2008 Yamaha YZF-R6. I did a forum search but came up trumps.

Last time I pulled my bike apart I had 2 screws left over, I've currently pulled off the fairing again and this time wish to make sure I put everything back where it belongs, I don't want any stray parts lying around

On a positive note I have worked out where 1 of the mystery bolts from my last bike tear down came from

Btw what system do you guys use to keep track of things while you work?

Atm I'm assigning numbers to screws and drawing simple diagrams of the bike sections with numbers to correspond to screws. I lay the screws out in order elsewhere with corresponding numbers written on paper underneath.

Probably sounds a bit particular but it's the only way I can think of to manage the work.

Go to or for the micro-fiches (i think thats what theyre called).

I have used a muffin pan in the past to organize shit. Just label it with some masking tape.

Do it enough number of times, u won't need any labels and can do it with your eyes closed

I used to separate them based on where they came off from, still do that sometimes, force of habit
