    Hahaha - in my wet dreams . Don't think my knackered knees would bend that far. Was thinking more of a 765 Street Triple or a T120. I actually like the looks of a Street Cup (me being from that cafe racer era) and whilst I'm not a horsepower junkie despite riding the GSX-S, the 55 bhp of the Street Cup might take some getting used to. Guess it depends on whether I carry on my IAM work after next year.

    The real issue though is that the magic smoke has escaped.

    No, wait, that's only British bikes with Lucas electrics.

    If you have to replace the reg/rec, then I'd recommend a MOSFET replacement. There are a couple of sellers on the US eBay who sell them along with a wiring kit. Watch for fakes though - under US$100 and it's likely to be a Chinese knockoff.

    all this talk of electrical stuff when clearly it was caused by the total lack of exhaust wrap combined with no brown seat

    Rubbish .... it was simply low on blinker fluid.

    Apparently if you buy an R1, a Fireblade, or similar, a mosfet R/R comes standard. People who are heading far beyond the horizon on their BMW GSs etc often replace the standard R/R with a mosfet item before they go. If my current item shits itself I'll be upgrading.

    My 11 STR came with the Shindingringding Mosfet but I upgraded it anyway to the SH847 of the same manufacturer , as used on the DL1000, and is a wave chopping rather than shunt (which means feeds it into the windings and hopes the oil strips out enough heat to survive).
    Measured with a laser temp gauge the cover the stator bolts to is like a full 10degrees folder after a decent ride.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?
