I had this happen to me also because the "instructional" videos I watched never mentioned about pulling the fuse.

I did not even bother to clear the code and my CEL went off on its own. The codes are probably still "readable" with a scanning tool but the light is out and everything is working correctly.

Im just going to give my experience regarding disconnecting gauges without pulling main fuse (knowing that best practice from Service manual seems to have you disconnecting battery with many procedures)

Ive done this twice (for bar replacement and then again to readjust them) I am about to do it a third time when my 16" Spearheads show up. As Beerhunter says, the instructional videos never say to disconnect, so I didnt. No codes thrown either time.

What I did....
I did not pull the ignition switch out, I popped out the chrome cover (gently) to allow space to pull the gauges over the switch.
I had my key fob in range throughout the entire procedure.
I then moved the switch from Off to the Locked position allowing me to wiggle off the gauges. Key fob stayed in range for the entire procedure. (works pretty easy to wiggle off without messing with the switch or its position. havent broken the chrome cover yet, but found pretty it cheap on ebay if I do)
Did the bar replacement.
Reassembled everything, and then moved the ignition to the on position.... no codes.
I then went in to see if there were any codes stored (just because I could), and there were none. No light, no codes lurking.

Im not saying this is the right way to do it.
Im not saying I know why this works (I dont)
Im just passing on my experience in case it helps.
And I probably jinxed myself for my upcoming (and hopefully final) bar replacement.

I have 19 RGU and it has the two extra plugs. Not being a smart ass but, one on each under side of the ignition switch. In fact, the one on the right side sucks to get unplugged. The little release section is under the plug and unless you have small thin fingers, its a tough to get off.

I know which one you are talking about but I’m referring to the smaller ones further down attached to the other harnesses.

I did all this too. Codes were still there but easily erased with my tuner and thanks to the help of people from this forum. I saw the check engine light and my heart sank but I reached out here! Thanks all!

I do not believe I have these same plugs. I will take it apart and take a look. Thank God my wife had little fingers.

I installed the 12s. I couldn't get enough clutch line slack to run in front of horizontal bar. In the vid he just mentions cutting one zip tie. What else will give me more clutch line slack?

What year is your bike? I installed 14’s on a 2017 RGS and was able to get enough slack. The clutch cable stays behind the bar running across the triple tree up from the right side. Another option for slack is where they have them ran up the frame in the housing. You can take that loose unless you’re particular about those kinds of things...

You mean I might get mine before you do?

I gotta hand it to KST. Were it not for ordering their bars, I might never have known there is a place in the world called Eastaboga, Alabama.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.
