You don't need to disconnect the battery on modern motorbikes/scooters. The electronics will automatically switch to 'sleep' mode after 1-2 weeks. Never disconnect the battery on my KTM 1290 Super Adventure and after 6 months unused over wither starts on 1st/2nd press of the button. The battery is slightly discharged but plenty in reserve to start and after a short run, starts like new the following days and for the rest of the riding season. Never on a battery tender either, 3 winters so far.

You take the screws out then you have to pull the panel out sideways at the top once it as come away you then slide it down,
half the problem is knowing which bit is going to move, it does not take a lot of force once you get the hang of it.

Only thing I don’t like about mine is no oil warning light, I do have a gauge that I may see if I can fit but to buisy riding the thing to bother up to now.

Screws have been out, and every clip on the side released, but something is holding it in the middle, out of sight. I've pulled it, slid it, and sworn at it, and pulled it again to the point of snapping. It Will Not Come Off...

Sounds like you have not found the small poppet rivet at the bottom . You need press the middle of the rivet to release it and then just press the middle back in to re use use it on re assembly.
Sorry if it sounds like I'm teaching you to suck eggs.

There isn't one on the 300!
I had no trouble with the similar panel on the T-Max, and I'm pretty handy with vehicle servicing...but this has me beat!
When I get chance, I'll go to dealer and let them snap it...

It’s dead easy to remove, Ive had some panels that were a nightmare to remove.
Just remove the two self tapping screws and then pull the trim edges outwards.
As soon as you get the edges out it virtually falls off :)
