    You don't have to remove the tank to install the BP. You can get by with just sliding it back enough to raise the rear and allow access to the airbox. Of course by then you've done almost everything needed to remove the tank except disconnect the fuel lines and lift it off.
    Just saying, installation can be done without removal.

    thanks mark/paul

    the instructions whut come wif it didn't say nuffin' about takin' the tank off or movin' it around..

    not a big deal but if you're not too smart like me it woulda made it simpler to figger out where to stick it.

    thanks, genamins...i'm headed out to the garage.

    It's not you....A friend of mine gave me a BP to try, his a Hex/Cam and mine an F800. A lot of digging shows that it should be the same device but the relevant instructions, no doubt, were written by someone that has done the install many times and forgotten to mention the "little things"

    Since every R tank config is different...I wouldn't have thought you had to go that far...the airbox is more exposed on the RT & GS when you pull the covers off.

    my bike

    ]

    looks like i can get at it leaving fuel and electric lines connected. be nice to have an extra set of hands, though.




    probably should be doing this this AFTER the 6k mi check. anybody think i should tell the dealer the PB is in there? i'm inclined not to mention it.
