2007 Daytona - R/R Electrical - Melted Plugs

Hi Guys,

Well Spring time a cometh soon again and I figured it was time to get the bike cleaned up and check up on it's innards. I found a huge problem.

Some of you may remember I had an R/R issue with my Daytona last yearish time frame. Well I replaced the burnt out R/R and everything was grand all last season. Come to pop up my gas tank now, and to my horror I found that the wire connector to my newer R/R has frayed/melted to the black connector on the bike...(see pics)




This is way beyond my skill level in bike maintenance. I don't own a trailer and I know no one who could carry my bike to a shop. I certainly don't feel safe to ride it like this either.

1) Is this something one would recommend I even try to tinker with at this point...(what further damage could I cause by breaking the wires/plugs)?

2) Is this an expensive fix if I find out I have to replace the wire plug to the bike and take it to professional shop?

3) Is that picture clear enough to see what I'm talking about here?

Please help if you can. I'd greatly appreciate any input to solve this problem as I'm planning on selling the bike this spring and sure as shit cannot sell the thing with this problem...

As your attorney, I advise to you take this acid

1) you said that its way above your skill level, find someone or take it to a shop
2) it has the potential to be a very expensive fix... worst case scenario is a new wire harness depending on where the wires go
3) pics are clear as day

Jawesome! Thanks guys. I talked to MCC and they offer free pickup service too if the bike fix is 250 or more which is nice stuff. They were able to just wrangle me into the 6k tune up service so that I could qualify the free pickup/delivery, but since I'm selling the bike anyway, I guess it is relative....

Sigh. I will miss it, but not it's temperamental attitude each spring.

Well, other than this minor issue with the electrics, it was in otherwise impeccable shape, so I'll have to see.

Have a two bros. pipe on there now, also comes with some extra break pads I somehow got due to a shipper's error, and BMC air filter which I just got but haven't installed.

Nada guide says its worth about avg 4900 with stock, but the additional crap will make me inclined to bump that up a bit.

The bike is junk. I will give you 2.5k for it, and tow it away for you. Don't listen to SmartDrug, he is only looking out for himself.



2k7 D675 and the Street Triple all have electrical problems. It should be easy for MCC to sort out.

I had a 2k7 D675. When it broke I took it to the dealer under warranty. Sorry, that's all I got for you.

Yeah I'm a member on Triumph675.net. That's a good site for some information as well. I am leaving this one to pros though because I'd have to strip the plugs, and re-wire which I am ill equipped and skilled to do unfortunately...also I'm going to have MCC run a voltage test on the system. I think my R/R I bought was shit sadly...

I hope you like bending over and taking it upo the ass. You could buy a whole wiring harnes for $75 and if you feel like haggeling maybe $50. Plus 1 hour of labor which is not that hard and can be done by urself.

Of course MSS will be eager to pick up ur bike for free cuz they know they are going to charge you out the ass. LOL

on a street bike you'll need to remove the fairings ,tail piece and fight the harness through the engine frame space.

your saying that if you started with a fresh bike at 7 am you'd have it back on the road by 8am.
I say HA in your face.
I'd bet you'd be lucky to finish the job before lunch.as would most people.

The connector got hot more than likely because it had a loose fit and was generating too much resistance. Cut the connector off on both ends and soldier / crimp / heat shrink the wires together. The entire wire harness more than likely does not have to be changed because one connector got hot.

A few things:

- Make sure you have a good battery. If the battery is dead the charging system works too hard. Make sure you have a solid 12.5 volts on the battery.

- When the bike is running, hold the revs at 4k and make sure you have 14 to 14.5 volts at the battery. This is how you make sure the charging system is working correctly.

- Unhook the stator from the regulator. Make sure you have at or above 60 volts AC out of each wire combo coming out of the stator.

If you are not comfortable or don't have the correct tools to troubleshoot the issue don't. Take the bike to a professional.
