An400 K1/K2 which reg/rec type?

Post by Taipan » Tue Jan 29, 2019 3:47 am

Hi All,

Just picked up a 2001 AN400, not sure if that's a K1 or K2? Anyway, it flattens its battery so I put a meter on it and the battery goes from 12.8 to 11.8 volts when you start it, regardless of whether the lights are on or off. So I've been on ebay to get a second hand reg/rec but there seems to be two types? Does anyone know which one of these fits this year bike?

Type A

Or type B

I believe its mounted next to the handlebars? Is it fairly easy to get to, or do you need to remove a lot of panels etc?

Many thanks

Its back of head light on mk1 just take front boomerang off possibly screen as well can't be sure .Its bit of a fiddle but can be done can't remember which one I just adapted one off a helix wires same colour worked okay .Helix one was bigger more cooling metal .

Its better to be a "Has been " than a "Never Was "

The one with no wires on may be a K7 one .I brought a used one to take on tour just in case.

Thanks Guys. Took the boomerang panel off and its a wired one. Looks like I should be able to change it with just that panel off too. Famous last words...

They were indeed famous last words! Brake splitter is right in the way! D'oh!Looks like headlight needs to come out, or the main front panel dropped down?

Looks like its a bit more involved. New thread about it in the garage forum if anyone can help?
