Trunk removal instructions

Hey guys - new guy here.

Have to remove the trunk because I have a damaged saddlebag frame and need to replace it. New frame on the way.

Saddlebags are off .... bu I'm surprised to not find instructions on how to remove the trunk itself.

Anyone know of anything?

It's on page 2-13 of the service manual:

Remove the following:
seat (page 2-5)
rear fender A (page 2-13)
trunk lower cover (page 2-13)
trunk lock cover
passenger headset connector from the holder
Disconnect the saddlebag opener cables and subwire
harness connectors and license light
connector.
Disconnect the antenna connector and 12P connector
of the trunk control unit sub-wire harness and
14P connector of the trunk sub-wire harness.
Remove the wire bands.
Remove the four mounting bolts, three washers and
trunk assembly from the stay.
Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

OK, Catatonic. Trunk is about ready to come out. All bolts removed and it's loose. All connectors disconnected EXCEPT ....

This bike has TWO antennas. The left one is no problem - it's wire seems to go back into the trunk behind the seat.

But the other antenna wire - can't find a disconnect. It seems to be unbroken all the way up to and under the front cowl.

Tell me I don't have to also remove the front cowl just to get this wire disconnected ......................

I'm not going to be much more help, as I've never done this myself, but I can give you the picture from the service manual. It appears that the connector for the antenna is just in front of the front saddlebag bracket that goes over the fender:

Thanks.

This seems different from what I have - maybe the dual antenna thing changes it. Wondering if there is an inner 'wall' inside the trunk I can remove to find where the antenna wire attaches to the antenna ... maybe a connector there.

Was going to take a lot of pix and post a "How to", since this does not appear to be well documented .... but maybe my bike isn't 'typical' (just a standard "HPNA/ABS", but lots more connectors to disconnect ... and then there is this damned antenna wire).

The dual antenna simply means you have a CB. That's what the left antenna is for. I will admit that this manual is for the '01-'03 models, and your electrical connections may be different from what this manual shows. Sorry I can't help further.
