Question K 1200 GT Fairing Removal

I am having a hard time removing the fairing on my 2007 K 1200 GT all of the screws are removed but the locating nose and pin will not budge. Can someone please share the secret as to the best method of removal such as lifting up or moving forward etc... (I would hate to snap off the tab).

Thanks

well there should be a screw at the top of each fairing way in the front by the radiator. The right side is hidden under the rubber flap of the air snorkel.

All the rest should be obvious (two hidden under the glove box lid) on the right side.
Also note that most of the screws are of different lengths depending on what they are grabbing behind the fairing.

Once you are sure all the screws are out it should be fairly obvious as to where the tabs are. Just be firm. I know some times it feels like it should break, but it won't. You kind of need to pull and bend a bit at the same time. Do a search here. Some where some one post a diagram of the removal process and the screw order. Good info.
