thanks...

so it uses the same mount as the turn signal?
the rectifier bracket has hole on one side and an integrated nut on the other side.. i take it that i use the side of the bracket that doesn't have the nut?

Garage
If you're feeling adventurous you can relocate it. It's a pain in the ass every time you take the fairings off. I love not dealing with mine anymore.

That looks like the old crappy R/R that was replaced by a recall in September 2012. If your bike is a model from between 2006 and 2011 then you may be entitled to a FREE upgrade through your dealer.

Call him with the bike VIN and he can check if you're due one. If you are then you really want to get the upgrade before this one leaves you stranded, knackers your battery or blows your stator, or all three.

As I said before, it's a FREE upgrade.

thanks for the heads up.. you're right, it is the old one. Dealer will order the replacement for me and i should have the new one in the next couple of weeks.

In the mean time id like to get this one on and i am still a bit confused. found this link http://daytona675.org.uk/regulator.htm

i see where the basic bracket hole mounts on the top corner fairing bracket.. but still not clear on how it mounts on the turn signal.. it doesnt seem to reach... hmm maybe its the aftermarket turn signals?

Nice one. You've dodged a bullet there.

Can't help with positioning though as I have a 2006 model and they're mounted near the shock.

never mind.. for a second i thought years of drinking have finally killed off most of my brain cells.
apparently the aftermarket fairings i was installing had an extra tab there getting in the way. i removed it and now it goes where it should.

Is this a safety issue they are replacing them on bikes even if the bike is out of warranty?

Doesn't matter if the bike is out of warranty. If the VIN of your bike is covered by the recall you get a replacement. FREE. Mainly affected bikes built from 2006 to 2011.

Click the link below my sig which will show you a photo of the crap R/R.
