you can bypass the bank angle sensor very easily, you just need to pull the small plastic insert from the left side of the front. the plug for the BAS sits behind it. will take you about 2 mins. (you can remove this piece by popping the side panel out of the tank cover, removing the bolt, and the trim clip from the inside, then working it out. it's pretty simple.
the plug for the coils you should be able to reach without removing anything. two of the coils are fed 12v from one wire, and the other two are fed from another. these two positives are actually from the same line, they split off in a splice hidden in the harness where the positive also takes off for the bank angle sensor. the plug has 6 wires in it, the two positives, and the four individual negatives that go to the ecu to be switched to ground to generate a spark.
if you didn't have the TBs off then nevermind, if your TBs aren't properly seated you can get all kinds of weird bucking and surging, thought maybe an errant wheelie dislodged them (i've seen it before). it's basically just an enormous vacuum leak.
those two checks should take you about 10 mins. no big deal
