    And sometimes you find a pleasant surprise where the PO has already changed it, (EHC), and done a quality job too. That’s what I found on mine. When I opened it up to see which way I wanted to go it was already done with the RIP 2, (a few members helped me ID what I had).

    So the only reason why the RIP 2 comes with a new wiring harness that runs down in the backbone must be for the different connector plug for the new EHC? If Axel’s EHC is reliable it would definitely be worth it along with the potential cost savings.

    I will have to do some research also to educate myself so I can determine if this one has been changed or not. Most people would be up front and honest about it and then there are the guys that don’t (the gas and go business man)

    How much does he charge for the EHC? Does he advertise on the internet or do you just message him.

    RIP 2 does not change the backbone harness but Axel’s has the easiest setup. Plug and play on the EHC module only.

    The RIP gen 1 requires changing the backbone harness 2 does not. Hope the k9 works out for you but don’t rush it. Get the one that you like, I drove from Florida to IN to pick up my dog, 36hr round trip.

    That makes sense. I was watching a YouTube video showing the harness replacement, obviously it was for the gen 1.

    I was looking at a couple in Texas on cycletrader and one I really liked, but the price is to high for a 2006. The one I’m going to look at Saturday is one I’ve had my eye on all summer and is only 95 miles away. It's a good price for a 2008 and it’s had some mods done to the motor.

    Nice savings. Mind posting up how you did that? The recall kit from Derek and Donna is about $48 after shipping so you could save guys quite a bit of moolah!

    It’s a super sweet dog, chromed to the max and very well taken care of. He also has done a lot of work to the motor, clutch and new carb.
