airfilter and cover on

we need to mount the fan scoop , will keep the seat and ecm much cooler

so ecm needs to come off 

shock canister loose, and zipties cut off the hose and oil line to the remote adjuster 

you need to take a side rail off to mount this scoop

battery tray screws out

now we have room to place the scoop 

still a pushing and shoving but it will go in 

first the undertray screw back on with the shock canister in place you can not reach it 

breather hose gearbox in the hole

battery tray connected again 

ecm in place, if this ecm bolt and nut gives you problems, please don't mount it like this... because off the scoop it is very hard to get to the nut

Uly is smootzing very nice, but as the wrap is heating up... the smell is terrible, quickly out the door and test ride :-) 

1125Cr test ride... mnnnn never seen this before, dash froze up with voltage spike 

ok 18 + volts is a little to much

Just checking with my Fluke, yep way to much 

overcharging... commenly only 1 problem the regulator, as this one is already 60000 km old and has seen 2 broken stators... it finaly gave up 

2 x M6 nuts to remove it , 1 is easy , the other not so 

a bit off wiggeling and take the old one out
