Couple of things. If you've got the pump out of the tank, replace the gasket when you reassemble and you'll save yourself major irritation of fixing a leak later. Also, not a bad idea to slosh test it for leaks before you install the tank. Last time I put my tank back on I didn't do that and--it leaked.

The bank angle sensor is in the front fairing between the headlights. Make sure it hasn't come loose--unlikely. When you reconnect the harness, the sensor will also reconnect. You really can't go wrong.

Feeding the air ducts into the front fairing can be a pain sometimes. Seems to work better if you look at them through the front of fairing--the air entry side--and guide them into the slots with a screwdriver.

It's attached to the headlight harness. So like I said, attach the headlight
