Regulator / Rectifier removal

Does anyone know how the hell you remove the reg/rec easily.  Cut knuckles, lots of swearing and throw in a few beers has not helped.  2016 S1000R.

Sounds like you're doing everything in the correct order. Next you have to give up and then try again before you get it off.

My DVD says:
1)Remove rear brake fluid reservoir and bracket
2)remove the two plug connectors
3)remove the two screws.
But, it looks like the rear foot rest and the shock present some space issues.
I suspect you have it out by now though.

Thanks Beech, yeah I have the BMW Repair and Service CD as well and the instruction is pretty much close to useless.  Apparently the rear shock needs to be removed to get access to the regulator.  This is what I've researched.  Well it gets better, to remove the rear shock you need to disconnect the bottom part of the sub-frame and pivot  it upwards to allow the shock to slide out.  WTF BMW. :232:

Sounds like a three or four hour job, nasty. I was out on my bike the other day and thinking about how compact it is compared to my K13S. So much stuff packed into a bike 20% smaller. This is one of the results.
