or simplify turn signal/horn access it is helpful to remove
the electric windscreen. The entire assembly can be
removed as one unit so there is no need to remove the
windscreen from the "arms" that support it.
1 - Remove the six screws from
the back side of the fairing.
2 - Remove the six screws around
the perimeter of the windscreen base plate on the front of
3 - The windscreen assembly can
now be lifted out and removed. However, there is a connector
for the windscreen motor on the right hand side that must be
disconnected. It's easiest to have a helper hold up

possible to do it singlehandedly.
If you're doing this to get the
instrument cluster off then you need to remove the four 5mm
Allen head machine screws that hold the instrument cluster
in place. The wiring harness connector for the cluster is
held in place by a machine screw with a 3mm Allen head.
