Hi,

I have just replaced the original rectifier-regulator with a non Honda part and had the burnt out stator re wound. Does anyone have details of the actual circuit contained within the regulator-rectifier box.

I would like to know out of curiosity

I have actually found the motor to be smoother after this work or am I dreaming?

A word of advice: regardless if your rectifier-regulator has failed, apply heat transfer paste to the mounting plate as I found that mine was only touching on 2 small points. This would let the assembly run hotter and probably contributed to its failure.

My 929 regulator simply floats around in the trunk (when I have the charging system on the bike) with no problems but I would agree that it's probably better to mount it in contact with a nice big lump of aluminium to aid in heat transfer.

Thats correct,the no1 reason for RR failing is the heat.Changed mine with an aftermarket one with bigger cooler and fins and it will never fail again.(done that with every bike i ever had..they all burned rr)
