I have an Aspencade, but if your mirrors are mounted on the fairing, I think it works the same. If you pull back the boot around the mirror, you will see two bolts toward the front that hold the mirror on. Take the top one out and loosen the bottom one. Repeat for other side. Now you can remove the trim cover that goes across the front of the bike. From there, there are four screws that hold the windshield on and it is pretty much self explanatory from there.

P.S. The bolts that hold the mirrors on have a phillips or a 10mm head. You just need to turn the mirrors to get them out of the way of the trim.

Thanks you for all that info. How does the chrome trim cover across the front come off?

There is a hook on the bracket that hold the top of the headlight, along with the top mirror mounting bolt on each side.
