How to remove radiator covers?

How do I remove the radiator covers (both the chrome and the middle pieces)?

First you must remove the radiator trim covers on each side. There is a small screw at the bottom and the top has a tab which goes into a slot. That will expose the screws that mount the center cover to the radiator. Once that is removed you can access the fasteners which hold the inlet bezels in place. I highly recommend anyone doing much work on a v-rod, that you buy a parts catalog. It is full of drawings and exploded views which show all the parts along with their names and part numbers.
This proved to be invaluable, along with the service manual as I built my bike from a wrecked one which had been mostly dismantled.

V-Red, Do you have a part # for the Parts Catalog?
