You have to remove both mirrors, then beneath the mirror mounts are two screws on each side that hold the aluminum trim on. In addition there is a clip fastener just above the headlight that you have to pop up on the trim to get it to release.

Randy has it right. Remove both mirrors. Then a screw on each side of the windshield. Mine slides to the right on a bracket and then lifts up. But I have a 98. Might be a little bit different.

On the GL12, to remove the windshield:

Remove the upper mirror bolts.

Slightly loosen the lower mirror bolts.

Protect the headlight and use a flat screwdriver to pop the windshield garnish up, then remove it.

Remove the 4 screwsthat holdthe windshield to the fairing. (note how the pieces are arrangedto easere-assembly)

Why ain't we ridin'?
