Any DFW tech daze scheduled

I need to remove my tank and do:

1. O2 sensor
2. Booster Plug
3. Stepper removal

Anything else someone who has more experience than me on this bike can recommend.

Does anyone in the DFW area host tech daze?

I would like some assistance for my first time. :-)

Lots of threads on the process.
1. Siphon or run the tank to empty, disconnect battery
2. Make a template from Styrofoam to put the side fairing screws in (different length screws) so you know where they go.
3. Battery and tank cover easy to see which screws go where. you do have to take the filler cap assembly off. When you have this off pull out the "funnel" that goes into the tank and drill a 2 holes at the top below the cap sealing edge (tank side) at 12 & 3 o'clock. reduces splash back when refueling and if your going to ride right now, gives you a 1/2 + gallon in the overfill space that is normally used for expansion. If you park for 10 minutes before you ride you will have fuel on the ground. Ask me how I know.
4. 4 bolts to remove the tank, two electrical connections, and one fuel quick disconnect.
While you have the tank out change the quick disconnects to metal ones and add the clamp on the fuel pump boss (beemer boneyard has a kit of disconnect and clamp)
5. Automotive O2 sensors work and are cheaper, you do have to cut & solder leads
