    I got the dealer tool, installed on computer, but I'm non-plussed. Where is the ecu hook-up located on the bike? I've never had a bike with this much plastic on it. :001: HELP!  Thanks in advance!

    Changed oil (came out red, looked like MMO) and final drive lube per y'alls wonderful hlp for the 500 mile check. Just wann do the rest of the check and reset the idiot light.

    It's on top of the bikes battery, which is under the plastic cover where the right hand fairing pocket should be.

    Once I pull the elastic ring loose, is there a trick to removing the cover?

    Get my post count up by replying to my own post. Think you Brits are sleeping anyhow. Figured out the battery cover by READING THE OWNER'S MANUAL  :745:  :046:  :152: :047:  :431:

    After downloading with y'all's advice and the instructions included, the DT read the ECU # and I have emailed it off to them. On another topic, I'd like an emoji that expresses gratitude. Thanks!

    Hi NC Scooter,

    While waiting for the Code to be sent to you,
    have a read of this Topic :

    Over my 30+ plus years of working on bikes, the majority of which had fairings of some description, I'm still puzzled by how they come up with the fitment arrangements occasionally. Can't beat owning a dedicated workshop manual for a vehicle, assuming that you can actually get one for it.

    The code came this morning, I completed my service. I've looked at that post. My 77 Oldwing Vetter fairing has 4 bolts. 10 minutes tops.

    Glad to read that I am not the only one that is amazed the way some things are put together.
