Default Electric/Mechanical gremlins?

Id agree. My K6 has done 134,000 miles and still has the original RR, indeed it had the original 13 year old battery until just a few weeks ago.

What R1... says above makes sense from an electrical engineering point of view (as does his blog), but whether it is worth doing or not is a balance between the risk of changing things on an older bike and the subsequent advantages.

See other replies but NO.My old Electronics tutor had a great saying.

"The lifespan of electronic and Electro-Mechanical components is between zero and infinity or three days after the warranty runs out<BFG>"

I've got an Original R/R that is over 35 years old on another bike and still works fine

This is what can happen to Stator circuit block connectors that are not looked after,
