I am midway through this and wondering why I need to remove the ECU and tank??

Please read this and see steps 35 and 36.

Never again after those two steps does it ever mention the ECU or even re-connecting it. Is it an error? What do you all think?

By removing the ecu, do you get more room to route the harness through! pain in the arse job by the looks of things though.

Total pain in the ass job!

From the drawings before and after the ECU removal bit - the wiring loom goes nowhere near the ECU - that is why I am confused by it.

Had OE heated grips fitted when I bought the bike. Took mechanic a whole day. Salesman said if he'd have known how difficult it was he'd have fitted the Oxford grips for free. Good luck doing it yourself.

Had my OEM heated grips fitted by the dealer. Don't know how long it took him, but it was worth it  :002:
