Upgrade Regulator Rectifier Install

Greetings All Y’all,

I decided to upgrade my factory voltage regulator/ rectifier to the better cool running MOSFET type unit.

Here are my install pictures. The donor RR was from a late model Kawasaki. The mounting holes do not line up, thus one must fabricate a bracket. This is the most time consuming part of the drill. Time wise, it was about a two 42-ring cigar project. Not too difficult.

Our friend DEcosse helped me locate the used RR. He also introduced me to Jim at Eastern Beaver motorcycle stuff. Jim fabricated a factory type wiring harness with the waterproof Furakawa plugs for the new RR and the Yazaki factory plug for the Triumph end of the stator wire. In other words, every bikers dream…. just Plug-N-Play!

The upgrade also includes running the voltage supply wires directly from the RR to the bike’s battery. In other words, you bypass the voltage drop of the factory wiring harness and factory fuse box. This will give more juice to the battery.

Jim is a great guy and charged me less than $40 USD for the wiring harness delivered! Ya can’t beat that!

My Arai is off to Decosse and Jim. Many thanks, y’all are good-ole-boys!

Nice!!! Thanks for posting!

Does this eliminate/reduce the need for the charging system upgrade?

Any idea how different this is for the pre-'05 bikes?

Cheers,
-Kit

Kit,

Go to this link for a basic explanation of all this. The pre 02 version is an automotive style alternator. They tell me the 02-05 models are the same, except the R/R is in different location

Nice write-up, Warden.

Is Jim going to offer the harness as a standard thing, or will he make more upon request? I have been dealing with him on my PC-8 and he's a class act!

Great job and excellent writeup, Warden! Your battery will love you.

I have also ordered components from easternbeaver and am impressed with his fast processing and shipping.

He has the components, so I'm sure he will offer it "over the counter". Now that we have the correct wiring lengths, he may install the fuse holder nearer the battery.

I cannot brag enough about the quality of Jim's work. The components and wiring are of the highest quality. His finished product is better than the original motorcycle manufacturers (I have a background in Avionics).

Thanks for your kind words Dave and OnD,

Please feel free to "comment and criticize" the work and/or the images. I need the feedback. You won't offend me in the least.

This project wore me out as I was working in 95 degree, 95% humidity. I'm also too old to be rolling around the concrete floor. Gotta buy a bike lift!

I'm very slow at something like this as I test fit and install then re-install the fairing and all, before I make my final decisions.

Shooting and editing the pix, along with five beers and three or four Dominican cigars, I'm sure I made an error somewhere. I know, it ain't rocket science, but we all have different levels of competence. Or is it incompetence? Ha!
