Yes, the update.
After owning the bike for a short 5 weeks - yes 5 and putting a solid 4876km on it (yes in 5 weeks - and it was brand new when I bought it) - it just so happens my regulator rectifier is the broke. What a piece of shit. LOL. It is under warranty so yay for that - but for the next bit I will be without transportation - yay? Seriously - love the bike thus far - but this is not installing mucho confidence into a new yamaha owner.
Anyways - the shop which I took it to said they would try and get me up and runnin asap - so...time will tell.
