Regulator / Rectifier Modification

Post by Beast »

After my last post/thread on this topic vanished when the forums went down, I decided to write an article this time round as a few peeps have asked me for advice.

So here you go... Regulator/Rectifier Modification

Please feel free to make this post/thread a Sticky topic as this mod could be useful to some. ;)

Sorry to hear the bad news xxxrated mate, in most cases only your battery gets fried!

Fingers crossed. :?

yep got it checked out today, thank god its only the battery. i think i will be following ur guide to fit a new rectifier though. can you just confirm for me if the R6 and R1 use the same rectifier?

A quote from the above url...
As you can see from the pictures below I am using a 2000 Model R/R from a Yamaha R1. The R6 unit is exactly the same. And all years are more or less the same as well.

The choice is yours mate, but the honda units are prone to fail. ;)

My R/R went again last year so I ordered a replacement from David Silver which came with a heat sink on it already and bolted straight into place and no wiring mods. It was advertised as an original replacement but it's worth phoning them to make sure it's the finned type. It was expensive £55 + vat and delivery but I hadn't seen the R!/6 conversion then.
