    Yeah I figured it was normal, why else would it have a GREEN LIGHT that says "power" right next to it if it wasn't meant to indicate "unit is powered on and operating normally" (hence the green light).

    So we just put 90 miles on the Wolverine this past weekend, a real test for the PC-V, and I'm happy to report the machine and the unit performed without issue. One concern though is that it gets really hot in the tunnel, especially for the PC-V unit sandwiched in-between the top of the air filter box and the botton of the center console. At several points along our ride I popped the center console out to check the heat and that little red box down there gets dang warm. I'm sure the unit is designed to be located in hot environments but damn, it gets really hot in there!! Do those of you with the PC-V have the unit mounted in the same location, and has heat ever been an issue?

    What build or model is your Wolverine?

    I feel a lot of heat coming up around the gear shift and brake rubber opening on summer drives. I was wondering how hot it was getting under there myself. As per my signature i have the OEM skidplates so there isn't a lot of air getting up from the bottom. I expect Yamaha was aware of this in putting them on and the heat was ok for what was in those areas. Electrictronics are never happy when its hot or even very hot will complain at some point. They need a good heat sink to keep them functioning.

    If it was an issue I think it would have fried mine by now.
    It’s an SE with skid plates as well and mounted on the air cleaner box. 3500 miles on the PVC.

    Mine is a 2017 Wolverine EPS, with full factory skid plates underneath. Yes we do feel considerable heat coming from around the shift lever and e-brake handle while riding. When I pull the console and feel around in there, its hot. Doesn't seem like the ideal location or environment for electronics but with the "short leash" of the PC-V harness, I don't really have a better location option. Its safe and secure from the rough rigors of the trail, no doubt..... but hotter than the hubs of hell.

    Thats good to know. Especially since it'll take me about 10 years to put 3500 miles on my Wolverine. ;-)

    That would be a huge pain if that is the case. Just curious if anybody knows the answer to that.
    I have a Hunterworks PC-V (as well as AIS blockoff, slugged wet clutch, and machined sheave) installed on my 2017 Wolverine and just had it repaired under warranty, no questions asked.
    Granted, it was not an engine repair, but they replaced the complete final drive due to a bad input shaft seal that allowed water to enter the gearbox.
    I am told several parts were toast so they put in a claim to replaced the entire assembly, which Yamaha approved.
