Good Afternoon Fozzy.. So, I spent a couple of hours this morning replacing the regulator. And it actually went pretty easy.. Save a few silly mistakes.. I will say, while I haven't been able to jump on it and go for a ride yet (waiting on my wife to get home and watch the kids for a few) it idles A LOT nicer and it sounds more beastly. I don't get any bogging when cranking on the throttle in neutral. So, here's what I did, hopefully it will save you some headache..
1.) Removed the battery cover.
2.) Inspected the regulator cover to see if there was a way to remove it without dropping the exhaust. Eureka! There's only one bolt holding it in and it was easy to remove with my exhaust, just pulled it up and out from behind after removing the bolt.
3.) 10mm Socket, remove the two bolts from the regulator.
4.) Disconnect regulator, remove felt washers/locate for reuse.
5.) Reconnect regulator, unknowingly blow main fuse.
6.) Attempt to start bike, No Power
7.) FREAK OUT!
8.) Realize you're an idiot and disconnect the negative battery cable.
9.) Remove seats
10.) Remove IC Cover over battery.
11.) Replace 30A fuse.
12.) Start Bike and notice how much better it sounds and starts.
13.) Replace IC Cover
14.) Replace Seats
15.) Replace Regulator bolts/washers.
16.) Replace Regulator cover.
17.) Replace Battery Cover.
18.) Start again, just to make sure you didn't mess something else up.. lol
So, sometimes I'm a dummy and get in a hurry.
