Rapid bike install

does any one know how to disconnect the round metal injector cable nut in the first step of the install of the rapid bike. the space is very tight, not sure how its done. I have tried with my hand and with nose pliers but it won't budge.

Throw a channel lock on it and twist. It's tight.

Ill second this one -- but I would suggest adding a towel or something to prevent marring. It is a tight fit and channel locks are what I used to remove it from my bike...with the towel of course. Just make sure you feel it lock into place when you tighten it back up -- loose connectors will give you all kinds of headaches.

Good luck with the install -- and if you have any issues, Yaman is always quick to reply to emails and it seems like anytime I have called him, he always makes time to answer questions.

They actually make the "correct" tool. Its for circular connectors (Amphenol,Bendix etc)

Enough folks have done this mod to give me confidence that it's worth the effort.

After 15 months w/ my 1299s in stock form, I'm about to join the Termi slip on / RB Race module club. I put the sprint 08 filter in last summer so that's one step I can avoid.

I'll be doing the slip ons and the module at the same time. Any benefit to installing either the exhaust or the RB module first?

RB module doesn't care.

I too used a towel over those lockable/adjustable pliers (sorry I can't think of the proper name for them at the moment!)

Not the exact kind in the pic posted by endodoc, but these should do the trick (amazon link below). Should help this job but also seem generically useful for other similar applications. Price is reasonable too.

RB is in, Termi slipons are "slipped on".

50 miles yesterday, 50 miles today. Another 100 or so and I should be in like Flynn.

Smoother throttle. Still a little choppy (on / off) when decelling thru ~3k to 3.5k RPM, but hopefully RB will cure that after a few more rides.

How many miles before most folks have their's perfect?
