Well finally had some time to check for myself. The answer is you do have to remove panel B AND cowl A. It's so dumb--a small change in the design of the cowl would have allowed you to do and oil and filter change by only removing one small panel.

If I did not have the R1M with the expensive carbon fiber--I might consider trimming some of the material off to make this process simple.

All i did was remove the alum panel and the quick fasteners in the mid. It pulls out plenty far enough to get to the filter. It sucks that it spills on the exhaust though. I will be thinking of a way to catch this oil next time.

Exactly how I did it, I also made a small funnel like object out of cardboard for under the filter so the oil didn't drain allover the header pipes...Very quick and easy to change the oil on this bike..
