    It's about as hard flipping the switch when it's mounted under the key like I have it as pushing the "Run" button before you start the bike, not a big deal at all. I know it was more work but what the hell why not, I am tired of hoping the ehc don't fail, at least I know I can get home, been stuck twice now! don't like it at all!

    :oldhardlaugh::oldhardlaugh::oldhardlaugh::oldhardlaugh::oldhardlaugh: Don't worry, plenty rooms in my place LOL, you guys can bring the wife & kids too... it is quite a big house.

    But less talk and more action.... weather is very nice now till December and all the tourists are gone... its how I like it. January, February & March it can be pretty cold 10-15 Celsius. (50-60 Fahrenheit)

    Well I got my EHC back, installed it and I still have no running lights, no speedo, no turn signals, won't start using the start button, I do have a headlight and brake lights![​IMG], Anyway I did install the slam button and since I bypassed my EHC, when I turned on the power to the ignition and pushed the slam button it fired right up! So that was cool knowing that even without a functioning EHC the bike ran! So, since there is still a problem somewhere in the electrical, (probably a short in the harnesses somewhere) I have decided to install the DOC controller in my bike, I have read on the differences between the RIP system and the DOC system and decided to go with the DOC, I will keep you posted on the install!

    Thanks Ron, you are right, there are many great people here that work together to keep these bikes on the road! We all share a common love for these bikes! If it wasn't for some of the people here on this site I would not know what to do at all, being a member of BDB has helped me, as my buddy Ker would say, keep my bike "off the stand" and on the road![​IMG]
