XR650L Voltage Regular Relocation

Recommended Posts

I need to move the voltage regulator on my XR650L. Relocation spots are somewhat limited and that brings me to the question of the day...

Does the regulator need to be mounted to the frame to provide a ground and/or aid in dissipating the heat from the regulator itself? 

I would hate to cause a electrical problem by mounting it wrong.

Thanks for the help.

I just installed a Reg/Rec on my YZ250 and was wondering the same thing. Here is the link to my post with some pics of peoples ideas and what I did:   https://thumpertalk.com/topic/1108725-regulator-rectifier-mounting/


I asked trail tech and here is what they said about there Reg/Rec:

 "You can mount it in the air box if you would like. You will just want to run a grounding strap from the body of the reg/rec directly to the frame as the reg/rec dumps the excess voltage through the body of the reg/rec. We recommend mounting it directly to the frame in a place with air flow for the maximum life of the reg/rec."
