Lower fairings come off first than look for the fairing bolts underneath.

you have 4 bolts at the front wheel. 2 nuts uner each side by your knees. 2 nuts at the top of the lower legs and a third at the bottom of the lowers.
U usually take out the two turn signals and have a rope to tie off and hang the fairing at the turn signal holes.
Best to take the windshield off first.
