Now the replacement has failed after only a couple thousand kms. I'm not impressed with them or their rec/regs. Still waiting for an RA number at the moment.
I got my replacement Ricks and relocated it with Lakemonster's upper mount kit (for stock tank) let's see what that does - I now carry my OEM (working) VR on longer trips - dammit. I have no faith in my Rick's and feel I wasted my money.

FYI - Lakemonster has very nice stuff - I also have his bash plate and see it as a better design than others...without naming names....

Get on with riding or get on with dying - one or the other
