Second only.........and another half in engine, forks, rear shock, swingarm, oil tank, radiator, fuel tank, seat unit, rearsets, bars, levers, etc and more odds and sods than I would want to admit to - part of the reason why I went for another 990R rather than 1290R for the moment.

Very nice! All black looks mean.

Got any spare exhausts you want to get rid of??

Yeah, got those!

I cannot believe how bloody expensive exhausts for 990's got in a short couple of years. Jesus. $2000 plus for Akras. That's just ridiculous.

Scrub that, it'll be the reg/rec that I should have replaced at same time as battery.

Read these fail quite often. Easy to identify the problem and cheap/easy to replace?

Aye, latest OE part seems to be better than superceded OE part, ie one that probably just failed, but best to go with Mosfet replacement - http://www.regulatorrectifier.com/catal ... -rectifier

Same old stuff - broken reg/rec earth cable at battery eyelet but not sure if that was cause or happened removing reg/rec - so replaced reg/rec with old spare and Mosfet ordered.

Good to know it was easy to diagnose and repair.

Did you order the reg/rec from the website you posted? That's a US site right?

Aye, good service and fast delivery last time.

Similarly, have asked Joe for another one of these http://www.cycleterminal.com/horn-kits.html twin horn wiring kits in response to his note re not making anymore for a while - Eastern Beaver, another US, albeit ex-pat, electrical go to, has also stopped doing them - anyone know of another source?

I get the feeling I should buy one of these and either fit it or holding reserve. As I pretty well only use the bike for track days if the one on my bike fails I'll be stuffed at a circuit as regards a quick fix.

Voltmeter dropped into red zone again but got home OK - swopped out temporary OE reg/rec for new Mosfet but voltmeter stayed in red zone - turned out to be faulty voltmeter so just goes to show once again, always check the bleeding obvious first.

Question for those who with knowledge and experience of the dark art of electrics - I fitted a second set of earth and positive leads to the battery terminals on my 'old' SDR to avoid having to access the battery to add/replace components that should be directly connected to battery terminals eg twin horn wiring kit, trickle charger and Mosfet reg/rec - the Mosfet wiring isn't long enough to wire easily directly to the battery terminals so on my 'new' SDR I've connected the new Mosfet (and relocated the trickle charger wiring) to the main relay positive terminal and a separate new earth at one of the generator cover bolts - all seems OK but should these components really be connected physically to the battery terminals?
