I must admit, you made me research this because I hadn’t heard of it. As usual, the control devices that are attached to us are published but not something they actively bring to our attention.Since HD Connect is has been shut down, there was no need for the Telematic Control Unit on my 2020 RGL, not that I wanted it anyway.
You can't just remove the unit though - it will cause a remote disable on the bike and the signals will just rapidly flash back and forth and the bike is in-op.
Diag4Bike allowed me to disable Remote Disable, and then uninstall the TCU from the BCM. Once that was done, I was able to disconnect the TCU and everything worked perfectly.
I don't need the fairing space, but getting it removed feels like a little less big brother in my life. I'll go put my tinfoil hat back on now!

Nope, it's been shutdown. HD even stopped installing the TCU into the bikes mid-run of the 2020 models.So this HD Connect system is no longer used?
