  1. I checked the stator via "the drill" and got good results. The connector did not show signs of overheating. I've seen a lot of threads about the r/r taking a dump, so I'm trying to be proactive.. I'm hoping to have this bike for a long time. Ergos are nice, highway stability is great, the v4 lol. Just gotta tighten up my ship Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  2. My reasoning for changing out the r/r is that I don't want it to crap out on me when I'm far far away [emoji16] This is my daily ride, and I need her to be as reliable as possible. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  3. I got the super kit today. I'm not sure when I'll have time to install, but to be sure on the directions: 1. Removing stock R/R harness and taping off(no longer used) 2. Installing new mosfet R/R running Pos and Neg leads directly to battery with included 30A fuse break. 3. Leaving the original 30A ( fuse "b") lead hooked to the battery positive terminal Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  4. Correct. But I am keeping the fused connection between fuse B on the diagram and the positive on the battery? It looks like from the diagram it feeds to the ignition. It is a 2007 Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  5. Ok so with the super kit, it has a breaker fuse for the charging battery lead. But I will still need to connect the original 30a wire from the harness to the battery, but with a larger fuse block ? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  6. I crimped in a new connector for the 30a wire, and it's getting too hot to touch for more than a second or so. Within minutes of starting the motorcycle. Stock r/r also getting sizzling hot. So to be clear when I replace the r/r wiring, I still haven't fixed the 30a fuse connector melting issue? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. Good! I was hoping that was the charging wire through the harness for the battery. So the other end of that small connector goes through the harness and into the R/R? And that stock R/R plug is the plug I will be capping off? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  8. So fast forward to this year.. The new connector for the 30A fuse holder I spliced in is getting too hot. Too hot to touch really. [emoji25] And so is my R/R. Question: If I do the Roadstercycle.com fh020 regulator upgrade and wire directly to the battery, can I remove the melty 30A fuse and it's connector to the stock bike harness?

  9. Sometimes I hear a metallic ping on my 06.. I figured it was the exhaust. Usually only once and usually when it's colder outside Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  10. What kind of noise when you blip the throttle? A backfire, or a metallic ping like a muffler shield when it cools or heats up? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  11. And cam chain slap sounds a lot like an exhaust leak Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  12. Could be exhaust gaskets, but if you haven't messed with them, probably not. You would hear the leak when cold. I'm pretty new to the vtec v4, but if it's a Honda v4 with a cam chain, the tensioners are bound to go at some point. They've had updates/upgrades on tensioners since the 80s. Normal wear and tear service part. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  13. Valves usually get quieter as they wear. I'd look into the cam chain tensioners Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  14. Sounds like a good battery. Charging voltage seems good. Have you checked the voltage when the bike is hot? Like after a good ride? Maybe the stator or regulator is failing from heat Any alarms or non-stock items that could have a parasitic current draw? Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  15. Maybe. But the easy check would be to check resting voltage on the battery. Needs to be 12.6v or better after sitting or it's on its way out. Then I'd dig into charging system output Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
