Here ya go!
Thought it might be useful for others too.
These are the instructions I send out with my brackets.


Remove Tank Top Cover (7 tx25 screws)
Remove Rider Seat (2 tx25 screws)
Remove left and right Tank Trims (each 3 tx25 screws)
Remove rear 10mm Tank Bolt
remove Side Tank Bolts (2 tx30 screws)
Disconnect Tank Breather Pipes
Lift tank and disconnect fuel line and electrical plugs and lift clear
Remove front ecu retaining screw tx25
Remove front ecu plug(by pulling clip fully forward)
Disconnect elec plug and hose to air valve
Disconnect wire to single connector clipped to upper fuel rail
Unclip zip ties to allow ecu to swing out of way
Unclip upper injector connectors+the one with white tape(ensure refit in correct positions)
Remove fuel rail screws(4 tx25) Lift fuel rail and swing out of way
Remove 4 airbox screws
Raise airbox and swing out of way

If you wish to completely remove the airbox you will need to disconnect the breather pipe and remove the electrical plug to the variable trumpet motor.

3D Print your own bracket

I made a bracket that you can 3D print for about $10 that should solve this deathgrip problem. I had success using materials with a high Glass Temperature like ABS or Colorfabb HT; don't use anything with lower heat resistance like PLA or a material too rigid like Polycarbonate. You can grab the object file here:

Nothing, It just makes the throttle a little easier on the wrist for the 2010/2011 bikes
