A little searching and I found it on page 5!

1- Remove passenger seat / solo cowl
2- Undo bolt for front seat, slide lever, remove front seat
3- There are six black push-tabs underneath the rear fairing section. In order to remove these easily, there's a small center push-pin in the middle that pushes up if you use a small screwdriver (small robertson works) and tap it with a hammer, which makes pulling out the push-tab very easy even with fingers. Remove all six of these - this will allow the upper portion of the fairing tailsection to be removed from the lower section.
4- You can now remove the upper fairing tailsection. There are two snaps at the front ends, pull these out carefully. Once these are out, you need to sort of slide the whole section backwards a bit because the lower fairing and rear led light clip under the top section. Now remove the whole piece.
5- There are two hex bolts that screw into the two metal brackets (the side reflectors attach to these) - you access these through the storage compartment area through two small holes in the subframe top. You can see the heads if you shine a light down into these holes located just behind the storage tray. Using a hex key, undo these bolts.
6- The storage tray will come out, but ya gotta wiggle it and pressure it a bit.
7- The two metal brackets underneath the tail section are being held in by two more nuts that you can now see with the tray out. Undo these.
8- These two brackets are now only being held in place by two plastic push-tabs. Use a flat screwdriver to pry them out, and voila, off come the two brackets.
9- The only real thing holding the mudguard on now is the wiring. There are three connectors you need to undo on the right side of the subframe that run through a wire guide. There is one grey connector and two black ones controlling the rear signals and the licence plate light. Disconnect all three of 'em (label them if you want), and slide the wires out the hole in the undertail.
10- The mudguard should now come off in one complete piece.

I can't seem to get the damn thing off, I have removed the two screws just above the tail light and the two allen bolts tward the back, I have the front seat off and I can remove the clips on the sides but that doesn't do anything. I think I need to pull out the trunk tray but it doesn't seem to fit unless I pull off the fairing. I see all of the rivets on the bottom, but they don't want to come out very easily.

C'mon help me out whats the trick???

Wow, reading that I was thinking "wow, that's exactly how I would describe the process" until I realized, "hey that IS how I described it..."

LOL

Please, don't ever call the mudguard a "bumper" though... motorcycles do not have bumpers for VERY obvious reasons ;)
