how to take off the radiator.

I have a 2012 adventure model that I bought with 1K miles on it. The previous owner installed bar risers and in the process they re - routed the clutch cable, so now when I lock the handlebars it is between fork tube and the radiator mount. It works good and all, but I would like to route it so that it doesn't get pinched there. In order to do it, I would need to remove the radiator at least on the side opposite to the mounting bolt. It seems like there is some kind of rubber grommet there. Is there an easy way to remove the radiator from its mounts, one screw way, perhaps? I don't want to remove the cable from the lever since I worry that it will mess up my clutch adjustment. If what I am asking for is too difficult I will just leave it as is since it doesn't seem to affect anything.
