Default 1996 Suzuki Katana Triple Tree Removal???


I need to replace my Ignition Key since it is defective. Do you have any suggestions on how to remove triple tree on 1996 suzuki katana? I already removed all the bolts (Middle bolt, 2 hex bolts for handle, 2 side bolts that I think are holding the forks) but it seems stuck. Do I have to hammer it out, if so where?

Please advise.

A large screw driver wedged into the clamp gap helps..

I ended up trying to use a long metal rod and hammer it up from the bottom of the Triple Tree and I was able to remove it.
