    I'm losing my ehc, 8 years not bad. Looking at the "rip kit" anybody have one installed ? Tell me about the Good the Bad & the Ugly.

    I went with the R.I.P over a year ago because it is considered as O.M.E put in all new BigDogs. It was an easy install for me and works great.The wiring harness could be made a little smaller if the wires where layed in the loom more paralle like wire lacing instead of just gathered and wrapped.

    I upgraded with the RIP Gen II. It installed easily without requiring removal of the tank, dressed very neatly, and has performed flawlessly.

    So the RIP Gen II is just the EHC replacement ?

    What else new EHC could be than new EHC?

    Like Franco said, there is about 100 pages on this subject, but yes, RIP kit, DOC's, Axel's EHC are all easy to install EHC replacements.

    You might also rewire oldskool with bunch of relays or use different Thunderheart model (RIP and DOC are based on Thunderheart) ,
    or maybe M-Unit V.2 by Motogadget. That is one interesting option I would like to see someone install properly with new harness.

    Or you can go totally bonkers and get Wires Plus.

    Axels ehc is really the only true plug and play option installation takes less than 30 minutes , built very well and eliminates all the original ehc issues and comes with a 2 YEAR WARRANTY, Best option available

    Eric installed a RIP gen1 on his K9 I believe and he just got back off an epic ride, Maybe he can offer a comment.

    I can't disagree with that statement I completely agree, Eric is the Man!

    I've got about 5000 on the RIP GenI and no issues and about 2000 miles on the Docs ESC. No issues on either one.

    My RIP GenI was the first version but from what I understand the issues I have with on/off and High/low have been fixed with an extra momentary controller and shipped with the new system.

    You can't go wrong with either one in my opinion. I do like the Docs Extra voltage light tied into the low oil pressure. Docs kit is a little more expensive.

    I am happy with both kits, I was dissapointed with the RIP kit not having the Run/Off and high/low correct , but like I said they have since fixed that and at that point I don't have much to complain about. Surely not enough to argue one over the other unless you want that voltage light which can only be had with Doc.


    I have no experience with axles kit so I can't saw otherwise. I'd prefer to get rid of that Printer Cable connection but that's me.

    Some have 60.000 on original, I have about 20.000 on Wires Plus, works fine, but I still consider those both a piece of shit. You can't really tell if some system is good based on few installations and few thousand miles... we can assume all the new systems are better than old ones, I wouldn't go any further. Except maybe saying that less connectors is always better, though I have perfectly good looking old connectors on my old computer
