Opening starter switch housing

Hi All,
I'm trying to replace my grips on my 1100
Trying to open the starter switch housing on the throttle side but am having difficulty.
Removed the one obvious screw.....what else am I missing?
Doesn't want to come apart. Have done this on my other bike without issue.
Any suggestions, as I'm ready to break something...
Thanks

There is two screws to remove. One is hidden by the wire loom on the bottom of the housing. Loosen the plastic clamp on the handle bar that holds the loom and you get access to the screw.
