Should I Relocate the Regulator if Goat Belly is removed?

Just wondering if there is a compelling reason to move the regulator if the Goat Belly has been removed?

No. Those who have relocated it, did it cause of possible over heating in stock location.
No belly, no move.

compelling reason?

The only reason anybody moves them is to make themselves feel better.

My stator made it to 92,000 miles, with both the goats belly and regulator in their stock locations. I'm beginning to believe what killed it may have been a shorted battery.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

With all the discussion about relocating the R/R, after a long ride I quickly removed the side cover so that I could touch the R/R. It was warm to the touch but far from hot. My bike is completely stock so the belly is in place. I think the temperature that day was in the 70's. Now that the weather is warming I'll do the same test. For now, I don't feel compelled to relocate the unit.

Tnx to all: Glad to confirm what logic was telling me.....happy to put back the Reg under the battery box: The connector has a toasted look...but still appears functional..a dab of dielectric and she should be good to go..Tnx again

I relocated mine because my bike was lowered and the swingarm was hitting it and broke the battery box

Moving them certainly would not hurt.

Is it necessary. I doubt it.

I am still waiting on a huge lightning strike and all encompassing voice.

I will get back to you after that happens.
