Worked like a charm for me. I missed the tip about removing the rubber piece at first but after a re-read of the instructions, I had no problem.
Thanks for the write up!

Glad to hear. Putting back in is a little easier.

Humph. I pulled mine a couple days before this post. Had a mare of a time. Managed to strip one of the mirror bolts. Had to dremel it from beneath then drill and re tap it. Now I have about 100 screws, hoses and electrical plugs and can’t remember where everything went. Got badly messed about with couriers (UK to Florida - vcyclenut) so a 1 week turn around has needed up being over 6 weeks. Forgotten everything now 😳

FYI David at vcyclenut had it turned around same day he received it.

It’s just left Heathrow on its way back to me so I’m hoping to get it back sometime this week. Then......😬

I also stripped the mirror bolt. TAKE ALL CAUTION NOT TO STRIP THE BOLTS. They are screwed into the front sub frame and the metal used is very weak and when attempting to drill out the bolt just crumbles. Just a word to others use EXTREME caution. ( part was not too bad about $300 from Kawi)

I managed to loosen it enough to get the dremel underneath to cut it free. Re-cut to screw hole and ordered 4 x new hex bolts. Yes siree they were a b@%#h.

I have a two part question, i need to send back my ecu for another flash. I would like to try this method, i can see the connections and kind of get my hand in there. Where is the release or the method for the release to get these pulled off, i dont remember from when i removed entire cowl first time. Also is the bikes mileage stored in the ecu or the display? I understand a flash doesnt wipe the mileage, not why im asking.

"The clips for the plugs are on the left side, towards the center of the bike. To release them use one finger push the clip open. If you can fit your other hand in there pull the plug away from the ECU. If you can't fit your hand in there you can use the flat head screw driver to push them off. The top plug I used the screw driver. The middle one I was able to pull off with 1 finger from each hand. The bottom one I was able to release the clip with my left hand and pull the plug with my right hand by reaching under the ECU and pushing it loose."

I'm pretty sure the mileage is stored in the display.
