Wiring Connector to the Coil for the Rear Cylinder

I've been inspired by Tweety to check the wiring on my VTR with a multimeter. While I've been able to figure out how to open most of the connectors that have been untouched since the bike was assembled, I'm stymied by the connector for the wires going to the rear coil in the bundle at the back of the gas tank. It looks like a waterproof connector and I can't figure out how to open it. If you've opened it, would you let me know what the trick is?

Is that one of the connectors that you look into the female plug end (while the male plug is still in there), and push a little tab towards the outside of the female plug, then pull the male plug out? There's some of those, not sure if this is one.

It looks like the Sumitomo HM two position waterproof connector on the Eastern Beaver site.

Yeah, I think we are talking the same thing here. Just push the little tab on the female connector radially outward, then give the wire a little tug and the male connector will pop right out.

Or maybe I should describe it as this: hold female connector with middle finger and thumb, then use pointer fingernail to "pull" the tab outward, then pull out the male connector. Sorry, hard to describe, damn connectors.
