I have a 2006 K9 I was having electrical problems. Turn the key on and nothing would come on, then the flashers would start flashing. I would have to turn the key off and on several times before the lights would come on. I would be riding and lose my speedometer, tac and my flashers would start flashing, kill button would not work had to turn key off to stop it. Over the New Years holidays I installed the RIP gen 1 and so far everything been working good. I like riding and don't want to worry about electrical problems.
