I got a good used oem reg/rec on e bay for 30 or 40 bucks. That was 3 years ago and no problems. Used oem is way better than new Chinese crap.

The answer is NO. There are no good aftermarket ones. Get the heavier one mentioned in the KB that is for a Road Star (I think) . Might be for another Yammy. It' in the KB.

went to yamaha, they told me due to the expense of oem units, they sell one from Mikes

Saw em online for half the $ but was unsure. Told me they been usin' them for quite sometime & they are reliable. This from a yam dealer who has installed many. Web priced from what I saw from $100 to 125, he sells me one for 90,had it on his shelf.

Done deal, time will tell but very confident.

thanks & youall keep this in mind.

OEM is less than $130.00 and good used is not too hard to find so why risk 100-125?

I think what he was actually talking about was the price they pay (wholesale), not the price you pay.
