You might want to be a little more specific and include a pic. There are several "red" connectors on a Gl1500 and I'm not sure to which one you are referring. Probably why no one else has replied yet.

Right and left are always relative to your seated position on the bike. There are 5 or 6 connectors mounted on a bracket just above the right side fan.

Is this the one that may require removing the fairing?

I hear ya. I was testing the 6brn connector and I was having difficulty holding the back to plug it back in. Perhaps I am overthinking it. Good luck

I've disconnected and reconnected those connectors through that little access hole you posted a picture of - it's just a PITA to do it. What Honda was thinking when they did this...well, I've skinned some knuckles and said some bad words working on those connectors.

Hope I catch you in time....when I installed the switches on the left side I found a great idea and I think it was on this site. Where I found the wire as the connection that goes around the location of the fan, once I disconnected it, I tied a heaving string around it, and made that string 7-8 feet long. When I wiggled that connector and the wire out, the string basically followed the path. I then untied the string on the removed connector and then tied it around the new replacement, and pulled it down back through. It was a pain in ass disconnecting the original (and yes, bloody knuckles too) but really easy getting the replacement connection back in.

Once you figure it put, cause I too need to take the switch apart to clean it. I don't know if you could loosen the nut on the throttle. Good luck.
