Question Speed sensor connector location?

My Google fu is failing me....

2012 Street Triple R.

TL; DR: Where is the speed sensor connector? Can it be reached without taking off the whole freakin' top side of the bike (tank, air box. seat tray, etc. etc.)?

Guessing this should be pretty much the same for any 675.

Pics would be appreciated if available.

Context:

Previous owner of my bike changed the gearing and the speedo is wildly optimistic (was a dedicated track bike so it didn't matter).

I have a SpeedoDRD module, which is a plug and play solution. The problems is, I need to find the connector for the speed sensor so I can, well, plug and play.

Factory manual shows a super-unhelpful image of the general location of the sensor, but what I need is the location of the plug.

Perfectly willing to take everything apart, find the sensor and trace the harness when I get a free afternoon (ha) but might as well ask and see if I can avoid that particular PITA task.

TIA!

The sensor is located on top of the transmission. So to the rear of the bike from the throttle bodies then straight down. You'll have to lift the tank to get to it. If I remember right you don't have to remove the airbox and stuff but it's pretty tight getting down in there. The plug should be a little easier to get to than the sensor

Thanks for the reply! This helps. A few quick follow-ups:

1) Is the sensor on the left or right side, or in the middle of the bike? The rather vague illustration in the factory manual sort of shows it just above the drive sprocket cover, suggesting it's on the left.

2) Safe to assume the connector is above the sensor (i.e. between the sensor and the ECU)? That would place it more or less under the rear of the tank, ahead of the seat pan.

3) Do you know what color the connector is? Thinking it's probably black... the last time I had the tank off I seem to recall that all connectors near there are black.

Appreciate it!

I am fairly certain that the sensor is pretty much in the middle. There isn't really much else in that area so it shouldn't be too hard to spot. I don't recall the color of the connector. Connector is above the sensor, can't really be below it.

Just lift the tank up and have a peek, it's fairly easy to spot.
