Ok guys I have the 09. and the pod mod does work. But be careful, the ecu is a little diff on the 09s. and it is on the left side of the batt. instead of under the EPS box. it has two plug ins instead of one. the one with the most wires on it is the one your going to need. also there are 3 yellow/white wires instead of two on the 09s. make sure you find the one that comes out of the plug and loops back in. one of the y/w wires is all the way to one side of the plug under/over a little white insert. that is the one you need. give it a little tug like your trying to get some slack out of it and you will see that it just loops back into the plug.
Now there is 2 ways to do this. i took the more daring route but With the way i did it there are no swithes or having to keep grounding and ungrounding a wire to mess with the settings. once you do it you are done and never have to mess with anything else, But the choice is yours.
The way i did it is 1st i unplugged the plug with the most wires on it and popped the orange cover off of the plug. Next, take a very small screw driver and use it to push the y/w wire that is all the way to the one side, out of the plug. make sure you stick it in the middle row of holes and not the outer row(the outer rows are the female ends of the connectors that mates to the ECU and you will mess the connection up). its kinda stiff but it will come out with a little pressure. once you get it out, look at where the other side of the wire is on the plug. there is another one of those white inserts directly above/under it. remove and place the wire in this slot. note which way the wire came out of the plug so that you put it back in correctly. make sure the connector seats back in the plug correctly. you should feel a very so slight snap when it gets in there good.
now the white insert you took out needs to be put in the hole that the wire came out of. Replace orange cover, plug back in and follow the steps to access the C1 settings.
The second way to do it is to cut the wire and put it on a single pole double throw switch. with one side of the switch connected to ground. flip the switch to ground to mess with settings then flip back to run the bike. I personally didnt do this because i wasnt to crazy bout cutting that wire but thats just me.
either will work. And sorry i dont have any pics but there is a thread on here that has some pics of how to switch that wire around but ill have to look for it.
Its actually pretty simple once you see how everything goes together. If you have any questions just ask and i will try to help. and if you need those pics let me know and ill see if i can find them.
let me know how it turns out man.
