As Bods said, you can just unplug it and remove the unit, then plug it back if you need it again. otherwise, if you don't want it, i might be interested in buying it off you, as i will be needing one for my d40 in the coming weeks!

Hey bods, okay, thanks. Not sure if you saw the earlier post which has led me to disconnecting the brake controller or not but, Tms40 has suggested that is possibly the cause of my limp mode. If the brake controller is actually what's causing the issues, do you believe that just unplugging the connector would change anything?
I mean, it's an easy enough thing to check I suppose.

Thanks for the advice

I'd be unplugging the plug from the actual controller rather that just removing the wire from the battery. The reason being, the controller is still wired to the brake light circuit and could be causing feedback issues onto this circuit, unplugging it completely removes any risk of it creating any interference...
