Remove fuel tank cowl

I am wanting to know. Have removed all the obvious bolts, but the cowl will not release at the back. It is clear at the front and very loose. Have tried pulling back, also pulled out at the rear. No result. Please help!

Hi it has two push studs each side of the tank at the back. Give it a firm pull each side and it'll come free

Thanks for this. It took a good pull but gave way. Next time will be easier. Though I did not need to remove it, I was just doing some exploration as to how things fit together. I had to loosen the radiator as after a big two day ride and 2000km the coolant leak started. I was surprised to find the clamp for that hose behind the radiator was not very tight at all.
All fixed now and coolant topped up.
