de-goating should alleviate a lot of the heat that causes the r/r's to fry.
Again...there is no proof that the R/R will "fry" in the stock position. Degoating removes the heat source under the R/R but, makes the bike louder....
Many come here and get brainwashed into thinking they NEED to move the R/R or their bikes will kill off their stator and cost them hundreds of dollars in repairs. Again...no proof that anything will go wrong.
I had my bike for 5 years and never moved the R/R...no problems with it or my stator. (Granted I did not have the bike that long)
Moving the R/R does make some sence "logiclly" , but again I stress there is no proof that it prevents electical system failures. Quite a few folks have had stator failures after
they moved their R/R.
Someone awhile back attached a thermocouple to the R/R before and after they moved it. Under normal riding conditions they said it seemed to run 20 degrees cooler out by the peg as oppossed to under the battery.
The heat does go up on the unit if you are in stop and go traffic. Under these conditions, your motor also tends to run hotter too... and sitting in stopped traffic on a real hot day , I did see the voltage drop on my voltmeter...now was this do to the R/R getting hot, the stator getting hot, or the fan kicking on...? Not sure, but not going to make assumptions here. Once I got moving again the volts came back up and all was well.
I think relocating the R/R outboard and also fabbing a scoop for it is overkill...and may be a bit more difficult than it sounds, as it is hard to test such things without the right instruments. Your "scoop" might actually decrease airflow over the R/R as airflow around a moving bike can be complex.
