I replaced one on a '94 Concours, which is probably similar. I had unbolted the pump from it's bracket, and if I remember right, that was the only way I could get the pump out! Have you tried that yet?

Yeah, what he said. Unplug the compressor. Disconnect the air line. Knock the air line loose from the bracket. Take the three 8mm screws out to separate the pump from the bracket. Take out the three 10mm screws that hold the bracket to the frame. Remove the bracket. Remove the compressor.
Good luck.

Same here. Unbolt bracket before removing pump. Even after that it's hard to get out -- but it seems impossible to remove otherwise.

Hey guys thanks for all the information.I finally got some time to replace my compressor.Removing the bracket helped alot.I unbolted the compressor,removed bracket and pulled it out toward the rear of car.Dropping the exhaust (muffler) a little also helped.Thanks again guys.I'm back on the road again.

Thanks,
Dennis
