i just did this since i had to get to the bolts of my triples to remove the bolts and torque it back properly. i had to remove
there's two bolts on the air dam and inside right at or by the bottom of the fairing bracket
remove the headlight connectors
i figure the 1198 is same/not far off from 1098, i used a small 90 deg pick to pull one side of the clip that holds the center connector in place. once it pulled up carefully, the other side should pull up.
best to have another hand holding on to the headlight. i had a hard time trying to remove that squarish' U clip holding the center plug. easy if you have a taller chair and your legs holding up the headlight.
