Need fairing removal help . . . please

I am new to this forum and to Suzuki. I just bought a 2018 Suzuki GSX S-1000F and I'm having trouble removing the fairings. Unfortunately there is not a good video on YouTube showing exactly how to do this. I've seen this link that shows the location of the screws and pins, but it does not tell the sequence or show which direction the panels are moved to release them. I am especially having a problem detaching the right and left section of the under cowl below the radiator. There is a screw which I have removed, however the two sections will still not come apart. I wish one of the seasoned pros on here would do a step by step video explaining the process from start to finish. These are some of the hardest fairings I have ever had to remove. I thought that replacing an air filter on a 2008 Gold Wing was difficult, but that was a piece of cake compared to this.
