many have...and well documented in the Verses section as well.

You can also use the Google search bar at the top of the page and search R/R or charging system to find what you need.

I've just finished a complete electrical overhaul from battery to stator.

My suggestion for the R/R is to leave it where it is and replace with a new one. Some advocate relocating the R/R but that seems unnecessary to me.

Depending on how small and nimble your fingers are you can just remove and replace it from under the battery. Only 2 10mm bolts hold it into place.

If you can't quite work in the tight space under the battery harness just remove the battery, unbolt its harness and tilt toward you to allow more space.

Like I said, if you just want to put an new one in where the old one was its pretty much 2 bolts and a plug.

yay, one of my favorite subjects... don't waste your time with a stock replacement r/r.. get a MOFSET R/R and a do the conversion. HERE is the whole story.

So stix, that's pretty much the long and short of it.

Let us know what you decide on.

Since sometimes a bad R/R can damage the stator and we all know how much fun it is to replace the stator on these bikes I went ahead and moved my R/R to under the side cover to help keep it out of the heat. I'm not sure the new location gets much more airflow but at least it's not sitting over the goat's belly.
