The (common) failure isn't (initially) in the Reg/Rec, it's the connector melting due to shorting, due in turn to the connector not being assembled properly in the factory.

Obviously for Yamaha fixing stuff under warranty, they're not going to get dealers to replace the connector, so they did the whole loom. If the bike's not under warranty (I presume it's a 2008 bike) then Stoic's solution is probably the easiest.

Even if I never got a problem like that (so far! ) since this year I decided to bring with me (during the trips to north Africa, not always!) a replacement regulator with all the cables plugged into the connector, so, in case, I'll cut off the old one and add the new. Yes I had to spend 110Eur but now I'm more relaxed.... ;)

Cheers

2012 should be ok. With no problem.... anyway the wires and the connector plugs are too small for the amount of the electric power... to be honest, if you travel to countries where the assistance is not present or very difficult to find, I'd buy it, even if is a 2012 model....

A little offroad with the machine. It has no proper tyres to do that, 2 days in the middle of nowhere taking the bikes out of this swamp.

Hi there

are the SW Motech quick release racks robust enough for off-road use? I am thinking about buying them. Why did you motosport panniers instead of SW motech? Curious to know

Cheers
