Installed Xmas bling. I still need to do the wiring for both levers, but want to get some OE-style connectors.













Motul RBF600 at approx 18months (in the glass) vs fresh (in the reservoir). That's very few road miles and a couple of track days (slow group).

New Stator fitted to the bike. Seeing as its had its electrical gremlins the past year, it's the only part not yet replaced (although always tested as good).
With it being winter/crappy weather it's the best time to strip it down and get it done.

A 'series' type R/R will give the new stator an easier life, instead of demanding full power from the stator all the time and shunting unwanted power to earth ( hence the name 'shunt' which is electric speak for 'parallel' ). The series ( electric speak for 'in the same line as' ) only takes from stator what is needed, like a light dimmer would. Just fitting an electrex series RR to my AL7 to replace the mosfet OEM Shindingen one reduced heatsink temp from 75 degC to about 40degC, (temp from temperature probe on same day at same ambient temp). It would have reduced stator winding temperature as well, although I had no way of measuring that easily. The electrex unit also rock solid on output voltage across rev range ( I have a digital meter on the handlebars ) between 14.3 and 14.4 volts - as Sid Larkin would say 'Perfick'

No tinkering as such today, but a test ride after the new Stator was fitted.

So far the good news is the voltage appears to be stable and the bike running well. Although it wasn't a long ride today (didn't want to venture too far, just in case) it was a successful first test. The next ride will be longer with some more electrical draw, to test if it is still able to hold a continuous output.
