There's a cir-clip under the nut as I recall?
After they're off, deep well sockets will do the trick, with a breaker bar (maybe wrapped in a rag) and fed out the gap between fairing and lower... Then manipulate the bars / steering to loosen the nut. It helps with that bit if the bike's on a jack.
Alternatively do it the way the V2K owners do... Take the bars off, clamp something in each riser individually, and turn that instead of the nut.
