Upgrade: In what ways is it better than OEM.

My reg is still good, but I would like to know, just in case.

MOFET = less heat
This is a weakness that is prevalent in the SE, but also, to some extent, on the Adv model.
I've gotten stranded twice because of the OEM unit failing. Now using a MOFET unit - made by Rick's - and ride with no worries. At least about that little bigger.

The stock regulator is of a shunt design and gets very hot! this heat shortens its life span!

I can attest that the Shindengen regulator runs much cooler and has a more consistant voltage output.
So keep in mind that my stock regulator lasted exactly 21000 miles so it cant be that bad.. I just wanted to use a cooler running, longer lasting, more accurate regulator.. Hence the Upgrade statment

Thanks for your interest, this first version held 6.3 litre. A more final product will have a more angled filler neck, and the Tube itself will be a touch longer, so should be closer to 7 litres. Stock exhaust Muffler clamp is utilized, so the
Tank is centered weightwise, and very strong. A second Mount is down low off the Subframe. If you plan on being in the
area, please let me know, and feel free to stop in... More Goodies in progress... Cheers! Mike.

Does it feed into the main tanks and would it work on a 990R?

installed the G2 Throttle Cam



installed the G2 Throttle Cam, starting off with the 400, per the instructions.



took me a few google searches of adv to realize that the end cap actually just pops off.




double thumbs up for the G2 system, it's night and day more comfortable in the first part of the throttle pull... makes slow speed stuff less jerky, and highway cruising less stress on the wrist.

2nd fan

Installed a 2nd cooling fan and 200-degree thermostat; the kit from ADVMachines. I ordered it last week, and after almost overheating (had to shut the bike off manually a few times) in NYC heat yesterday, am very glad that the kit is installed...the weather's not getting any cooler, and we've tracks to make.

Almost time for her second oil change so I bought this:





Going to make the oil drain line myself and install after the oil change. Parts were super cheap.

New top box

Found an old night vision goggles box on ebay for 40 bucks. Bolted it on and Bob's your uncle, water proof top box with character for cheap. I was thinking I would paint it but I'm kind of liking the army surplus look.

Overpacked the big girl for a trip to CO for a meeting; too many "presentable" clothes, etc. Looks like the Clampetts...

Full trip's looking like baout 3k miles, though, and once the meeting's done I'll ship all that crap home and get to RIDE.

Leaving after work....clock must be broke, I think it's moving backwards.
