Default 2007 XL1200L Rocker Box Gasket Replacement-Moving the ignition wire harness

Hello,
I am looking to replace the rocker box gaskets in my 2007 xl1200l but, I am having issues removing the wire harness attached to the frame in order to pull the top of the box off the bike. Every video I have seen of the gasket replacement, there is no harness blocking the top box. See photo....
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That harness snaps into the right side of the bracket that is welded to the frame. First, you have to remove the Torx bit screw from the left side of the cover and then move to the right side of the bike and pull hard and straight out on the harness and plastic cover to release it from the bracket.

Default Thank you

Thank you for this. I can't believe I missed the tori screw on the left side of the bike. It did take a bit to move th cables and ignition but am now able to easily access the rocker box. Thanks,
