Ok. The exup on my r6 was inside the stock slip on, but to remove the cables it involved a bit of work. If I end up buying the bike hopefully it already has a full system on it.

Also willing to trade my r6 for a 675 if anyone's interested.

A full system for a 675 can be pretty expensive, have a search through the performance and mod threads, if you're handy with a welder and a grinder there's some great ideas.

I run a PCIII on my 2008, only because I'm computer illiterate, the TuneECU program spun me out. Put tools in my hand and I'm good, give me a computer shit will get broken

Its the afternoon on the last day of the holidays and its your call: Reg Lindsay`s Country Homestead with Mum and Dad or a painters plank on the top of a 12 gallon drum and your YZ80E...

I did everything for the 12k service myself except the valve adjustment. Everything else is easy.

I think I had all the common issues since I ride a lot. EXUP I disabled through the software and both stator and R/R burned up. Other than that, no issues. The charging system is by far the weak link.

What are symptoms of a bad rectifier? Bad stator?

Shop around - also what type of insurance are you getting. 675 was considerably cheaper than the 600 I4's in the Bay Area due to much lower theft record (i think that's the reason at least - either way my quotes were $700 vs $900 for substantial coverage).

I am on east coast so rates are different, it makes me mad the rates are as high as they are given we have a half riding season to begin with. I'm paying 780 on the r6 now and they quoted me about a grand when i called back for a same year d675 and this was with state farm. Geico wanted $2,600 i thought dude was joking lol but he was dead serious.


Does anyone know symptoms of a dying rectifier/stator?

There is a 2009 out of state that I may go look at this weekend, it is my understanding that all of those were under a rectifier recall?

State Farm rates go by cc's. So a dog-turd H-D 883cc that goes 105 mph will cost more to insure than a D675 675cc that goes 155 mph. 675>599 so ....

If it hasn't had the R/R recall done, do it just in case.
Some people(myself included..bought new-2008/13,000mi) have not had an issue with the original R/R. others have had multiple failures.

My closest dealer has a R/R on order for me.

These engines are pretty easy to work on. I am about to do my 12K valve check and adjustment next week.
Not worried about it at all. Read both the factory and Haynes manuals. Very straight forward service.

I spent about $300-350 on items needed for the service.
Oil, Engine assembly lube, various gaskets and o-rings, spark plugs, spark plug socket, feeler gauges, micrometer, cable luber, cable lube, shim kit from HotCams, and an OBDII cable.

Next time I need to do the service, I will already have all the necessary stuff. So it is a good investment in my eyes.
