need to disconnect the battery for an hour or so so the airbag doesnt go off,

there are 2 screws in the rear of the steering wheel which will allow you to remove the cover then the airbag. you will then be able to remove the steering wheel

needs to be left of for about an hour as the airbag could still go off if you just disconnect then mess about with the bag straight away

Refitting is the same as removal, but you can make sure that the air bag is suitable for the new bike because it is spoken of three four versions spoke. Also take precautions to straighten extreme wrapped connector. This is what gives the bag to remain connected to the wheel turned left and right. To get this thread could be dangerous Short airbag off while driving.
