dash removal

Has anyone removed the dash on an '18 T4? It looks like it pops off but I didn't want to break it. I'm installing rocker switches and a radio. LMK thanks

Can you show me where you putting your switches? Or they just in the area where it looks like switches go? I was thinking about putting then in the left side cubby hole, where I have seen speakers.

The places that "look like where switches go" was designed by the factory to hold accessory switches. I filled all of mine up and added a couple more on the left side of the wheel. At the end of the day, its your bike and you can put switches anywhere you want to

The dash popped right off. Thanks for the help. The battery placement on the '18 will make it much easier than my '11 T2 was. Thanks again.

I have a black widow spider infestation so everything is coming off to get rid of all the problems along with their egg sacs.
Some additional pics of a 17 T4LE with the dash off. I only have 1 of 4 center rockers cut out but I did it with a pocket knife and 10min time.

what wire is everyone using to get power for the accessories? Also, how do you remove the dash on the left side of the wheel in order to place switches there and run wires?
