Just received the right side bracket - any stability issues removing the frame bolts? In other words, do I need to brace the bike in any particular way before removing the OEM bolts before installing the new bracket?

No, those lower frame tubes steady things up but nothing will move when you unbolt them.

Thanks guys.

Just to clarify - a rear-wheel stand should be enough? I do not have a lift that will support the whole weight of the bike from underneath the frame.

Odd enough a friend of mine has a similar set up on his 06, but no issue with the wiring. My is an 07. I guess mine must have had a shorter wire.
I believe the screws will need to be torqued to 45 nm.

Same problem on an 04' T100. Flipped the ignition switch upside down, pulled off the headlight cover and played around with the wiring to give me as much slack as possible, and still not enough. It'll fit, but there's not enough lenth to allow the bars to rotate to the left freely without any pull. Thinking about splicing some extra length in as I'm a little uncomfortabl with idea of removing the connectors from the relative safety of the head lamp housing and placing it behined the ear.

I know right!? I've spoken with plenty of people who have done this basic mod with no issues whatsoever. I can't believe it would be cost effective to make the harness in different lengths if it were uneccessary between models, but there is clearly no more lenth to be had out of mine. Oh well.

I mounted the ignition connectors under the tank because of length issues.
