The connector on a 950 is located, along with the sidestand connector, just in front of the generator housing on the left side. It is tucked behind the front aluminum motor mount.
I'll bet the 990 is the same location.

Hmmmm, should I??? I just got it all back together... Can I access it just by pulling the bash plate?

It never ends (and I think that's a good thing ).

I have a TT plate. I can reach it right there.

If you have long and lean fingers, you can even reach it without pulling the bashplate, but if you lower it you won't have any problem getting to the connector.

found it at last. well pushed in behind other cables and generator?
now disconnected two cables and took it for a run after mod. seemed far more lively to me? pschological or not? but either way seems worth it

The wire colors were different on mine, but I got it done. I don't know if 20% more power is true, but there is a significant difference. The neutral switch on my '07 990 was pale green.

+1 on the wires on my 07 990 S. I still have the stock cans and the hesitation seems to be almost gone, plus its a bit crisper on the throttle.

i ve done it, works a treat. on the ADV990 the plug is above the rectifier on the left hand side of engine. pain in ass to undo, so i just snipped the wires halfway between the plug and switch. try it. better all round, and two up !!!!

Hmm, don't know if you have the right one.
It should be a black connector that runs together with another cable with a white connector.
I have yellow-brown, gray and green-black at the engine side and pale green, yellow-green and blue-red at the gear sensor side.

Mine is not an '07, so maybe one of the guys with '07s can check for you...

I would not've hacked into the cable like that, but maybe I'm just over sensitive

Once again: it is really easy to just push the end plates of the wires out of the connector with a small screwdriver. You don't have to touch any of the wire insulation and it is very easy to undo the mod if you have trouble with it (don't know what cutting into the wires does with your warranty).
