Afternoon Greg

 

Just slide the latch up  (might need to pry lightly with a screwdriver) then the connector should pull out of the module.

You need to slide the connector LATCH BAR up (not the entre connector), then pull the connector out of the ABS module.

 

Look at your top picture, see those short pins on the side of the ABS side connector? The latch bar locks over those so you need to slide it (the latch bar) up until it clears those pins.

Thanks to DirtRider for walking me through the removal of this ABS module....in the photos below you can see that the top of the electrical connector slides up....If it only goes up 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch keep wiggling it around until is slides up fully then the connector can be removed (as seen in photo)....the ABS module has a very very tight fit under the gas tank...Looks like lots of patience will be needed to get it fully out.....Off to Module Masters soon I hope

Interestingly (and not surprisingly) the same as a BMW car connector.   Years ago I had a BMW 335XI car, an inline 6 with sequential twin turbos.  I had purchased an aftermarket performance chip that would allow higher Turbo boost levels before the waste gate would kick in; on the car It was the same type of connector release that held the main plug to the main computer.  I had to access a few pins within the connector to add the chip.

just a tip for final removal of the ABS Module....once you unscrew the bracket that the ABS is mounted on....tilt it so you can unscrew the bracket from the module....makes it much easier to remove from the bike
