Well done!
I used to do self deprecating humor, but I wasn't very good at it.

Bullet connector under the left side fairing. Will take a picture of the push pin in question next time I pull the bike down. Can't see it when all together.

Did you ever tear the bike down again? And if so... did you take a pic? I'd love to see it, since I need to tear it down too, to install navi wiring.

Thanks!

See page 212 in your Instruction Manual, here you can see how to remove the fairing.

Just to check, since Iím not the most mechanically minded, these bolts also need to be removed for getting the left side fairing off?  :027:

Actually managed to disassemble the fairing. Now to find that elusive accessory connector  :027:

You need to remove two fairings on the left side. The first one is the one you remove when removing the bolts you mentioned, the second one is the tank cover.

Be careful with the second one. There are two tabs at the top-front of the panel which are almost VERTICAL. There's one tab on the lower front of the panel which is horizontal. Get that one out FIRST (well, after loosening the part of the panel which is more to the back of the bike), then you can lift the panel up slightly and get the other two tabs out.

You don't want to break those vertical tabs...

After removing the second fairing, you will find the accessories connector without problems, though it may be hidden behind isolation tape.

The fog light mounts are the SW-Motech mounts?

Super helpful! Tks. Managed to get both off and located the connector right behind the isolation tape. Gotta free it a bit to be able to connect the gps in.

All done & cleaned up  :celebrate:

And just one rivet left out balance at the end  :whistle:

Oh well, Kawasaki always over engineers their bikes  :745:

Also thank you @stlee29 for the help!
