Remove top of fairing left & right 'glovebox' surrounds to reveal the rear screws for...
(^ 1 screw & 2 tabs each)

... the painted 'V' shaped bit below front of screen. Prise out Piaggio badge to reveal front bolt, and remove (4 tabs).

Remove screen (6 bolts).

Remove instrument panel top shroud.

EDIT: Prise off both left & right silver strips either side of fuel filler hatch. This is so you can...

Remove both the left and right '>' shaped silver trim bits. The top screws for these are under the ends of the silver strip that has the seat & fuel filler release & hazard etc. buttons on it.

To get this off, prise off the Piaggio badge in the centre of the handbars. Remove the single screw beneath. Then the plastic 'cap' is held on by 1 plastic tab, but can be tight. Need to be a bit brutal but also not break it.

With this off you can get a long torx driver down through the space beneath to a centre screw that holds the middle of the silver strip with the buttons on it. Need to turn bars slightly so spaces line up.

Then can pull the silver strip out backwards and let it dangle.

Bottom screws for the left & right '>' silver trim bits are underneath the footboard rubbers. Prise out the black circular plugs and peel up the footboard rubbers just enough to reveal these screws.

Thereafter the silver side trims are just held on by plastic tabs, so can just be levered out.

With these gone more screws are revealed that attach the painted panels to the headamp unit. Remove every screw you can find that attaches these panels to the headlamp unit. Note that there's two at the front that attach the headlamp to the painted radiator surround but are not obvious.

Headlamp unit is secured by 4 bolts to the front subframe. unplug all connectors, remove the bolts and it should virtually fall out.

I had to dislodge the inner moulding of the LH 'glovebox' that has the USB socket in it, but can't remember why. Possibly to get access to the LH indicator lamp connector.

Hope you've got nothing else planned for the rest of the day!  

Reassembly is the reverse of removal as they say... do not forget to reconnect all the plugs! Or you'll be very annoyed when you discover you have to take it apart again.


PS: grease all the spring clips on the ends of the plastic tabs, stops them rusting and makes them much easier to pull out again later.
