five billable labor hours?? To put things in perspective, when my bike died on Sunday, to test if it were the PCV, we pulled it from the bike. On the side of the road using only tools from the toolkit, and it sure as hell did not take five hours! Probably 20-30min to pull it and reinstall it, but there's a faster way that doesn't require taking apart half the bike, if you have a helper to hold the fuel tank. It took me five hours the first time I installed one, but I had never done it before.
- remove seat
- undo side tank covers (all three pieces can come off as one if you undo the nine screws that actually hold the tank fairing pieces to the bike)
- undo bolts that hold the tank to the frame
- take out 10mm wrench and remove the bolt that holds the rear of the tank
- have friend hold the tank up
- snap the injector harness into place (2 minutes)
- tap wire into the throttle position sensor wire
- screw in ground wire to the battery
that ain't five hours!!
To do the Autotune:
- remove lower fairing if needed to get to the wideband sensor bung.
- Screw in wideband sensor
- route wiring up through the bike to the Autotune module
- connect Autotune with the PCV module
- wire in the Autotune with a switched 12V positive and negative wire (I used the wire that used to light up my license plate)
- make sure the Autotune is connected correctly and the terminal plugs are where the instructions say they should go
- button everything up.
IIRC I only had to remove the bellypan, seat, and pillion seat. You'll need a handful of zipties.
