Location of the fuel strip connector

i read everything there is to read about zapping fuel strip, and i'm ready to blow my 06 K1200GT up today! there is only one thing that is unclear to me... Where is strip connector located? What part of the fairing need to be removed to gain access to it? I'm planing to do the zapping with the full tank, without removing it from the bike.

thank you!

It's on the fuel pump flange; here under Fuel Supply

I read about zapping them also, but i just went ahead and put in a new strip.
You will not be able to access the connector without pulling the tank up. To get the tank upward you need to remove both side panels, both gray accent panels, battery cover, fuel tank cover panel, 2 hex bolts on tank lobes (both sides), 2 13mm nuts that secure the brackets for the rubber tank bumpers (both sides). To do it your way I would start with about an empty tank...disconnect the quick connect, pump plug and strip plug. lift the tank enough to be able to access the connector. I found it easier to move the tank around if you cut the zip-tie that secures the wires to the alternator. This frees up a few more inches of tank-related wiring. Raise the tank and attach your lighter ....(zapper). Put whatever gas in it you going to use after you have supported the tank It's going to be heavy and awkward if its full,,,,also,,,it wont have a cap on it.....zap away.
