I took the side cover and then the breather cover. To remove the breather cover , remove the allen on the side, then remove the two up front inside. You will have to turn the steering all the way to the right to reach the two up front inside .Then you have to pull the bottom out a little and then pull the cover forward and up. Hope that makes sense. The O2 manip is screwed in the intake from the outer inside wall . To replace the breather cover I had to take the front screen off to get it to line up right. . Hope this helps.

I'm interested too in hearing how hard these are to get off... both sides. Any difference in removal from right or left?

Remove 2 small allen heads on front screen, then 1 on the side, pull air cover out and towards the front, there is a tapered pin that slides into grommet on the frame, you will see it when cover is off. Try not to lose the rubber well nuts when removing cover. It will then be a pain in the ass trying to get air cover to slide back into tank cover where the rectangular grommets are. I found it eaiser to remove tank cover and covers all at once.

The air temperature sensor is on LHS intake.

The lambda sensors (02 sensors) are on headers.

ditto to above removals, as I recall it to a little wiggling to get it out, don't worry nothing will break.

I fitted fatduc 02 manipulators and they were fitted inline to wiring coming from 02 sensors (plug an play) one down near battery and the other under tank.

Sounds like your replacing original sensors with aftermarket. I suggest you get yourself a workshop manual, you'll find links on the forum, they come on a CD which you can copy to a computer (or Iphone if you like), best money you'll ever spend.

Turn front to the right at full lock. Once the bolts are all loosened, including the Big one on the inside (near the forks), then you have to slide the intake fairing toward the rear of the bike, as I recall. There are rectangular slots that have a tab from the bottom side of the intake cover slid into them. Cant pull away, down, or up, have to actually slide it forward or back. A flashlight will easily show them when shined through the hole where the front-facing metal screen used to be. Cable connection point will be obvious. Seems like super overkill to take the tank cover off. All in all, about 5 screws of maybe 3 allen key sizes (only 2 of which were in my underseat toolkit). If its taking longer than 5 minutes, you may be attacking the wrong area.

I wish I wasn't so on the fence about the performance of the O2 Manipulator part. Seems to have overly castrated the exhaust note, but maybe I just havent ridden it enough to appreciate the fueling improvement. A few worse MPGs isnt too bad as I get a measly 28MPG anyway with 99% city driving. Too bad its snowing today or I'd be out.

Anyone have more comments about your experiences with the O2 Manipulator?
