From looking at it, there appears to be 2 small screw that remove a protective cover over the ring and then it looks like you unplug it and it just pops out with a screwdriver or something. Is this correct??? I would just want to be prepared to do the swap if need be.

My bike is an 08' GSA.


That's exactly it. Pretty simple - make sure you carry a T10 torx to remove the small screws. I did a dry run in my garage and it only took a few minutes to rig it up and get the bike running. You can unplug it too if you want once the bike is fired up if you don't want to zip tie it on there. The good thing about that is that each group of GS riders only needs to carry one spare to get multiple bikes fired up.
