It's behind the left saddlebag, so you'll have to remove that saddlebag. I'm pretty sure you can get to it by just removing the saddlebag - but it's possible you might also have to either lift or remove the trunk in order to gain access. It would certainly be easier with the trunk also removed.

On my 93 the pump (compressor) is behind the left saddle bag. Has it changed since 93? :? I removed it for service without removing the trunk just the left bag.

Yep, just the left bag. I removed the shock also, just to get a little bit of extra wiggle room. It's pretty tight in there. Breaking the hoses loose before unbolting the pump will make life a little easier, too.
