HELP. Trying to change the ignition switch assembly on 2017 R6

Im trying to change the whole ignition assembly cylinder out due to the old one being completed shattered due to a theft attempt.

I'm aware that you have to remove the fork strut bar, I loosen the main steering column bolt and the two allen bolts under the tabs, loosen then two side bolts that clamp each side down to the forks but I can't get the damn thing to come off for the life of me, I pry one side up and the other goes down I can't get it to evenly come off.

it should just slide off by hand. are the wires to the switch holding it?
