Hi Dave. when I pulled mine off it had 3 "U" shaped grooves on the bottom end so it could slide strait up & out but I also replaced my mirrors at the same time so the old ones were off when I did the windshield. As far as I can remember, i had my hand crammed in through the signal light holes to access the nuts on the inside of the fairing. Tight fit for me because I wear a size 17 wedding band. Look at your new windshield and you will see the grooves at the bottom. Mine was sticky or tight, Cant remember which one but with a lil wiggling it slid strait up and off.

If ya cant fix it with a hammer, it's prolly lectrical
