Now that it's done, it works really well.
Could be much worse. I was on another forum where a guy with a sportbike says his FI light was on and it wouldn't start, after installing some LED lights. They went through unplugging the lights, charging the battery, disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, etc. Well, as it turns out, he had mounted the 'brain' for this LED light system on top of the ECU not knowing what it was. Stuck two screws right through the ECU. If I recall right, it was $700 to replace!
It's all a good reminder to get a service manual and take a glance at the diagrams for the areas you are working in before you start working. Those Kawasaki engineers are pretty clever and good at hiding wires and sensors and little things like that, and it'd be much better to find them in your book, than at the end of your drill!
