How to remove barend shifters?

Am I right that I need to dissassemble the lever in order to remove it from the carbon extensions? Anything specific I should be aware of?

Yes, you remove the lever to get to the bolt in the shifter body. Turn it clockwise (to the right), not counterclockwise, to loosen the shifter.

And since there has been a rash of threads within days of each other asking why their shifter only goes half way ...

Prior to taking the shifter off the barends, set the shifter to the low (cable slack) position. This sets both the lever and the shifter "inards" to low.

When reassembly time comes, make sure you re-install the shifter on to the square washer at the same (low) position.

Also refer to the Shimano exploded diagram:

Be careful with the fat washer (#2). It goes on in 4 different orientations, but only one is correct. Guess how I learned that?

Well I wouldn't so much say disassemble the lever as I would say undo the screw to remove the lever assembly in order to be able to undo the allen bolt underneath.

Probably the same way I did: put the shifter back together, get 7 out of 9 clicks, WTF? fiddle around with it for a half hour, oh, that's what I needed to do...
