Taillight removal Gen 2

How much do you have to remove to get to the taillight on the Generation 2 (2011) Versys? Seat, grab handles, rear panels, ?? I recently purchased an integrated taillight/turn signal unit. Lets just say the instructions are less than helpful...

Yeah it is not too bad... getting to ECU is horrendous

Remove seat
Remove the rear grab rails
Remove the rear covers by undoing forward bolt and some of those push pin. push center pin in then take out plastic rivets.
Remove the seat covers - note the tabs that need aligning on install
Rear seat cover comes out rearward. remember to insert the tab connections on install
Open electrical clamps
Disconnect the rear brake light connector
Remove the Left and right bolts on the rear of the latch mechanism frame to undo the tail section.
Lower the rear tail section and there are are 2 bolts holding the light to the tail section.
