Thanks! I found an engine removal how-to by Whiskerfish...:http://ngwclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=136657#p136657
...and the very last photo in that post shows the cover and two bolts, which gave me the visual I need to understand what I'll need to do. Motion Pro is building a new cable for me, but they are moving their mfg. facility, so it will be a couple of weeks
Once the new cable is here, I'll remove the rear wheel, and finish pulling my old cable.
For now, I decided to take advantage of the downtime to dig into the turn signal wiring. First, a little clean-up. The P.O.(plural, maybe?) had installed three extra wires to the tail light area, but had subsequently cut them off and wrapped the ends with electrical tape. I pulled the wires and found an "Adapta-Lite model ND-7," whatever that is (apparently, a trailer light adapter?):
He had also replaced the tail light wires, but hadn't bothered to replace the rubber grommet that protects the wires as they pass through the fender. Is this bad, lol:
I picked up some new grommets from the local big-box hardware store, and ran some new wires to the tail lights:
Finally, since the bike is off-line for a few weeks, I decided to tackle the new rear turn signals. The OEM signals work just fine, but they don't match the replacement signals on the front of the bike, so I'll be installing these, instead:
The idea is to install the black metal bracket over the license plate frame, but since the frame is wider than the bracket, I'll have to cut it down a bit first.
