Jack,
Those screw heads with the pins in the center are NOT made to be removed---instead they hold a push in post that slides into a grommet on the frame. Most of the panels are held in place by these posts and grommets.
Start by removing the mirrors and then remove the visible black torx screws. The panels will come off with slight pulling pressure where they are held by the posts.
Your owners manual should have panel removal details. If you have specific questions, please ask and I will do what I can to assist. I have had all of the panels off of my machine and it is not hard, but there is a sequence that has to be followed or you can damage the panels.

shock

Hello. Did they replace your rear shock. I weigh about 250 so keep mine at full pressure. It loses about 1/2 of that in 2-3 days. It is being replaced.
