Default changing DF200AP Suzuki Water Pump Question

I have the fly by wire set up and from what I've been told changing the water pump is a different procedure then a mechanical control engine. The manual says I need to remove the main relay or shift actuator fuse from the fuse box before removing clutch link to avoid shift actuator damage. Does anyone know where this fuse is located and how to tell I'm pulling the right fuse? Or if I disconnected the battery would I still have to pull the fuse?

Nothing is different from those 2 motors regarding changing the water pump. You do not need to remove any fuse or turn power off, the suzuki book will tell you this only out of precaution so nobody starts and shifts the motor while you work on it. Just make sure you are in neutral before dropping lower and in neutral when you put it back up, you can leave the key off to make sure nothing moves.

Perfect Thanks! So just so I understand I can leave the batteries connected? I have a dual battery switch that I'll switch to the "OFF" position will that suffice?

turning battery switch off is plenty. That’s it.

One last question: The manual says to use a sealant on the mating surfaces of the gearcase and driveshaft housing. It also says to add sealant to the 7 gearcase bolts. Is this necessary? I have the Suzuki grease but no sealant.

Grease all the bolts and driveshaft splines, no sealant needed.
