I got a TFI fuel computer for my 900 and I'm trying to figure out an easy way to install it. The instructions say install time of 30 minutes. :D

Well, I'm not sure that I'll be that fast. Gotta unplug the fuel injector lead and replace it with the TFI lead, then put the bike's lead into a TFI plug. It'd be very simple if they were in sight and I knew exactly what I was looking for. :eek:

Any help would be appreciated. I think I'll probably have to lift the tank.

Only takes 5 minutes to take the tank off. They is fully visible then AND you can route all the wires and strap em to something to keep em from flopping around.

Don't even take the tank off, just take the back loose and prop it up using a 2x4. Only hard part of the installation process will be getting the wires unpluged from the injectors and that's just because of the design of the plugs. It's a simple process and might take a little longer then 5 minutes, but not much longer. Small hands are also a plus.......

Dude, that 2x4 may work for you but my 290 pound maw feeding meat paws can't hardly get in the crack allowed with it let alone do anything. And I don't have any eyes at the ends of my fingers so my forearms kinda get in the way too. I REALLY need to lose some weight but it'll be a while before my hands get down to skinny enough to be effective. Probably 3 or 4 months after my jaw drops.

That's pretty much what I did. I pulled the 2 rear tank bolts and propped it up with a wrench. It was a little tight, scraped up my hands pretty good, but it wasn't all that big of a deal changing the FI plugs. I used med sized needle nose pliers to unplug them. Worked fine. Had more trouble trying to snake the wires into the engine compartment...... You're right, though, small hands are definitely a plus. I have fairly large hands, and for a while didn't think I was gonna get by without pulling the tank completely. Still, it only took me an hour from start to finish, so that's not too bad for a hack like me. :D
