So after this being the biggest nightmare ever i decided to post about it incase anyone else has similar problems.
My reg/rec decided to go, WHich is the most common fault with the daytona.. I have an 06 model and an 08 SE but it was the 06 which went... Riding home I noticed my tacho lights getting weaker and weaker... Got home, turned off the bike. It wouldnt turn back on.
Instead electrics would come up as usual... then the intead of starting it would make a large CLICK sound and the guages would go nuts.. So I thought i could be the battery... Changed it to the one from my 08.. THen the bike started up... All good... Next mornign i went to ride it.. Turned on the bike... put my helpet and gloves on... Then noticed smoke pooring out from under the tank. My heart sank.. Ithough i have totally fked all the electrics. I switched off the bike.
Took the tank off ( see How to remove Tank)
then realised it was the burnt out cable leading out of the REC/REG... So I took the old one out... Not too hard, Only 2 screws. Have to pull out from the exhaust side. Unplugged the cables pulled them through.
Purchased a new MOSFET Reg/Rec from. MOSFET is the type of metal which is cooler and allows more volts to run through. Much better unit and less likely to break.
cheaper then the $600 stock (crappy) one my mechanic quoted me over the phone... What a fkn joke...
So now Ill wait a week then just screw in to the existing spot. Plug in it... Ill need a new 3 pin plug.. Then it shoudl hopefully work fine... Ill keep updating as I go.
It also might fix a problem Im having with the engine dumping way to much fuel... my economy has been terrible and Im guessing that is why. As the Reg/Rec wasnt giving enough juice to components to control fuel maps properly. Or something like that.
