Hey there Coloradogreg,

I have a friend who's a Harley mechanic in Yuma, AZ, and I e-mailed
him with your question.  Here is his reply:

First, remove the ring around the headlamp; just one little screw on
the bottom.  Lift the ring out and up.

Next, remove the 7 or 8 black phillips screws that hold the whole
headlamp assembly on.

Next unplug the headlamp.  

Then remove the 5/16 nut on the little chrome piece that looks like an
arrow, and remove that piece.

After you remove the arrow piece you will notice a little screw on the
front side of the cover.  It needs to be removed as well, but it has a
very small 5/16 nut and washer on the bottom side that you will need
to hold and TRY not to drop.

Pry up the cover over the key lock on the back side of the handlebar
cover (the plastic piece that says "lock and unlock").

Under that there are two screws that need to be removed. 

After doing all this, you can remove the cover and get to the clamp
that holds the handlebars.

The clamp is held on by 4, 1/4 inch allens-head bolts.  Just loosen
those a little, and move the handlebars to the desired position. 
Retighten the allens sungly when you're done.

Reassembly is the reverse of these steps.

Hope this answers the question!  If you need any clarification, let me
