For starters its the throttle body. No carbs on this bike. But semantics.

Muscle it out. It's just stuck to the boots. Wiggle as you pull. Just be careful what you're pulling on. Try and only grab the main throttle body.

^

No carbs this bike is fuel injected, those are your 4 throttle bodies. They can be a pain but as long as you have all bolts out, and sensor plugs/hoses disconnected it just takes a little extra effort to pull them out.
The rubber has just been in there since factory and its holding like a gasket.
As far as your 3rd pic looks, you should be able to grab 1 side, lift up on it, then the rest will come with it out and at an angle. If you try to grab each side and pull directly up, the suction of the boot is gonna work against ya!
If you've gotten this far, you're good tho

I replaced my main harness a couple of months ago too. I just rocked em out after I loosened the screws. I didn't end up taking off the throttle cable though, just left em up on end while I put in the new harness. Good luck!
