    Thx for the help smitty,and hobbit,,Im not a mechanic,,but i have enough skill level to install pipes,and the air cleaner..Will the TFI require more aptitude,,or is it pretty self explanatory..Im not real comfortable with the wiring aspect i guess just to be honest about it

    The TFI is a simple plug and play application

    You don't have to remove the tank,just the rear bolt and lift it a bit to give yourself a bit of room to work,just be careful you don't lift it too high so you dont stress the fuel line.

    If you can install pipes and a AC you can easily handle this.

    You do not need to remove the tank to get the TFI rigged up. Just remove the bolts securing the tank to the frame, and CAREFULLY raise the back of the tank a couple of inches. Take off the cover on the air cleaner, and squeeze in there between the heads to unplug/replug the connectors on the injectors. You are putting the TFI in series with the ECM/injectors. No problem. On my way to the injectors, I wrapped the TFI cable bundle a few times around the existing cable bundles under the tank. Then routed the controller to the spot under the seat (see last few photos here: Image hosting, free photo sharing video sharing at Photobucket), and hooked the ground wire to the negative terminal on the battery. Set the pots as recommended by George at Dobeck, resecured the tank, rigged the bike for the road, and fired it up.
