    One other thing is when I installed my ESC, I did the recommended waterproofing procedures that Doc suggests, every jst connection was cleaned and I applied diletic grease and shrink tubing on them, also took all the turn signals, speedo, headlight, license plate bracket and hand controls apart and did the same plus sprayed all pc boards with clear urathane, and to top it off it came with a new headlight harness and ceramic plug and I got the electrical charging fault light in mine so if my charging system is not functioning properly, my oil light doubles as a electrical fault light indicator. So as you can see, Doc covers all bases and for me was by far the best choice.

    I understand that Axel's unit is working fine "For You" but, all I'm saying is my personal experience is with Doc's, so he's been around a little longer and I am not into being a test subject for a new product, don't take it personal, I am only saying what has worked for me and apparently has worked for hundreds if not thousands of others, proof is in the pudding brother. :oldsmile:

    It's not axles first rodeo either in the motorcycle world he has done a lot with his engineering expertise, both I'm sure are great replacements I really like the warranty and ease of installation I'm sure most woulda went with axles had it been available sooner

    I've got over 10k on the RIP II ehc replacement with no issues at all (except a bad ground wire -- not the RIP fault)
    I went RIP since it was the unit Curtis was selling at the time for my EFI bike and Curtis has always done me right.
    It was a far better replacement IMHO than the WP unit I used on the first K-9.

    You know I am sure that Axel's is a great product as is the RIP II kit, when I was needing to replace mine I don't think Axel's was available yet and there were some guys having a few issues with the RIP kit so I made the decision to go with Doc's and couldn't be happier, :whoop::old2: I am sure that both other kits are great choices also, but as I said, all I know is from my experience, and you guys from yours! :old2: now I am sure we have confused the hell outta Rick, :oldcrazy: whatever you decide to do Rick, I am sure one outta the three will do just fine for you. :old2:

    If Axels EHC 58 work on your model - Garantee is two years and you can program the ehc module functions like you prefer.
    (example flasher lights up 20/ 40 times, brakelight flashes before burn, showblinking and so on.) Maybe the PIC of the connectors is helpful for see it fits your dog? Programming is easy and can be changed more times. For better understanding: I thought wrong in my case - thought my ehc was gone bad - only in my case was another error. - No Critic on your detection. If I would know all, I have another shoes and can walk over the water. Wish good hands for repair your bike. EHC 58.jpg

    I would have liked to simply replace 1 plug-in unit instead of rewiring the whole bike with DOC's esc, but I would have always been skeptical about leaving that dodgy excuse for a factory headlight harness in play. By redoing the whole thing, I feel a lot safer riding the bike.

    It's my understanding it wasn't faulty wiring just the plastic plug so still easier to put axles ehc in and install an led bulb

    What about the vibration and the desk top computer type connectors on the factory harness.
