    Introduction

    This pictorial shows how to remove the front plastic portions off of a KGT 1300.

    This is not required to do any maintenance.

    The reason for it's creation was that I wanted to install my XM antenna out of the way, similar to the how I had it on the RT.

    This will show how to:

    - Remove the windshield

    - Remove the windshield supports

    - Remove the upper and lower front cover

    - Remove the rear portion of the front plastic

    - Remove the front portion of the front plastic.

    Please note that some preliminary plastic pieces need to be removed to be able to remove the full front plastics.

    Please refer to the KGT 1300 Plastic Removal Link and review removing the side plastic section.

    Windshield Section

    Remove the following 6 T-25 screws.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Before you remove the last screw ensure you are supporting the windshield.

    Removing Windshield Supports

    If you have the windshield parked in it's lowest position - raise it up a bit.

    This facilitates removal.

    Remove the indicated pins with retaining clips.

    ITEMS OF INTEREST:

    - The top pins have different retaining pins from the bottom ones
    - They are easy to lose, I put them back into their retaining groove
