What he said...
Turn the key to the lock position, push the little button underneath and turn the key Counter Clockwise. That releases a latch underneath and you can pull it straight up. Once it is out, try not to move the front around too much. There are two pawls on the key that both have to line up to get it back in. Once you have it out, you can see what the button/key do underneath.
While I was changing my fork oil, pushing the front forks up and down to get the oil sucked in, I managed to move the upper slot thingie (technical term) down in the hole, and the damn thing would not go back in. I used a long flat blade screw driver to line it back up.
Be sure to note the positions on the top nut and the two sleeve thingies (that technical term again) if you take them off. They are under the key. If you are not taking the instrument nacelle off, you should not have to remove them.
In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.
