Have a damaged headlight assembly.
Ordered/received new replacement from KFM.
Where can i find instructions on this replacement?
I do not want to pull all the body panels looking to fix if not needed.

Couple hours later and all painted panels, speaker grilles, speakers, a hundred screws, 4 special fasteners, 2 headlight post clips things are going well.

I need to freeze the windshield up, how is this done?

I left the battery hooked up and just motored the windshield brackets up when needed.
You need to reposition the large plastic panel back in place when you shut off power or it appears, to me, the brackets will return and break the panel

2 more headlight post clips and it seemed ready for removal.
unplug left side power cable.

You can see two of the white grommets where posts with clips are fastened.
There are 6 of these posts , you can see the clips on the lift.

Been broken for 2 years , worked fine, required a headlight lens cover to minimize water and debris. But today is the day for new headlight assembly.

I had removal issues with both plastic expanding rivets.

I suggest you buy new to avoid trying to save these. I was lucky and reused . lubed them up with grease when reinstalled.

RT back together and working fine.

How can I get these panels off to get the headlight assembly off the motorcycle?

To remove the upper painted panel that surround the headlight,
the speaker pods need to be removed to access two panel screws (maybe one) AND one large plastic pop fastener shown above.
There is a final panel plug at the very forward tip of this painted panel that easily unplugs.
Make sure the speaker pods/covers are the last items you install.

I find the manual illustrations hilarious.
only after the work will they make sense.
