PC III want the airbox off??? I never did that. All I had to do was connect it to the main computer from under the seat? You sure you are reading that right???
Unless there are major differences between the C and the F?
I'd suggest either removing the tank, or undoing it and propping it up with something. It would give you alot more room to work with.
Good luck with it, I'm not sure why they do it that way, I've installed 3 of the power commanders, 2 "C" models and a "S" model and it was a quick and easy install on them, plugged it in to the ecu and then tapped the wire in the harness on the right side. They definately made it harder for you.
What PC iii you got? I am looking at my instructions and first things says:
1: remove seat
2: Remove both side covers
3: Disconnect Black Connector from ECU
4: Plug in PC III inline with this connector and ECu
5: Remove ground bolt at linked brakeing proportional valve
6: Reinstall bolt with PC III ground wire in it
7: Locate red wire with yellow tracer on the grey side of ECU
8: Connect wire tap to this lead (SOLDIER THIS!!!!!)
9: Conncect grey lead to this wire tap
10: Locate cluster of wires in thge clear boot on right side
11: Locate brown wire (Tailigate 12 volts)
12: Plug red wires in line with this connection.
13: route the power commander between tray and left hand frame rail
14: Mout the power commander to the left side battery box using supplied VELCRO
Insatll is done
well just saw that post and you are right .. HUMMMMM
I can tell you that all you should have to do is take the rear tank bolt out and lift up and you shluld be able to get it out. If you need instructions on how you can look at the install instruction for a Hypercharger from the Kury website and that might give you some insight on to how to get it out. I have an 04 and it was not that bad....
