I think my R/R is gone. Voltage readings at the battery are basically unchanged when running.

Searches here indicate two choices....

Ricksmotorsportelectrics.com

Rodstercycle.com

Both are mosfet versions and not OEM, Any other options out there?

What's the preferred relocation spot?

Just a thought here, Within a group of 5 SE's I know of that had the VR go out, mine included, were running Shoria batteries. In doing research as to what could be happening, I have come to the conclusion (opinion) that the wattage that our bikes put out, and how "clean" or "dirty" the power going to the battery is may actually be part of the problem. It seems that the non lead acid batteries, i.e. LiPo, AGM, have an inability to efficiently absorb and smooth out the power being sent to them from the VR. This power then gets sent back to the system, and the VR, which in turn cooks it. I would suggest going back to a lead acid battery and a mosfet VR and see how that lasts. I have also gone through 3 GM high output 1 wire alternators on my musclecar, which has always had an Optima red top "AGM" battery in it. The reg in the alternator would keep burning out. 4th new alternator and a new lead acid battery and we'll see how she lasts.

FWIW 70K stock VR in stock location with a stock battery. I do have a spare at home though after reading these kind of posts just in case, it's also hardly hot up here compared to where some of you Yanks live.

Fwiw, my SE VR went out at about 24k miles iirc in August 2011 and it had the original stock battery. I installed a Shorai with a new VR and still ok with 32k mikes. VR is still in the stock location. Also fwiw, I have a small TT heat shield over the exhaust header.

I am in about the same boat. My stock VR did not fail with about 22k on it. I did, however, go to a LiPo battery about 8k ago. I replaced it preventatively with the MOSFET but left it in the stock location and I also have the TT heat shield.

Anyone else with similar experience?
I had to do a lot of tweeking to my new style brace to get it to clear the radiator to my liking.

Rear brake rotor

Should be no problem.

I use a complete set of 950 Adv wheels with discs and sprocket.
(removed one front disc)

Confirmed. Bought a new sold Metalgear rear disc rotor for a 950ADV & it fits like a glove, even used original bolts.

Much cheaper than floating disc @ $129 & will last longer.

Hi Guys,

I have recently purchased a SE and are enquiring on the correct way to fit a under bar Scotts Damper to the SE that has a 30ltr Safari fitted. In my opinion it appears that it does not fit, I also have the BRP triple clamps. The frame bracket that attaches the Damper to the frame is where the problem lies. It appears there is not enough clearance between the base plate and the Safari tank.

If you have this set up can you please explain on how to fit and even better if you could send some close up photos of your set up.

Cheers Russ.
