|michiganteddybear||wont get any heat thru the bolts since they are insulated. the back of the mosfet has a metal portion that can help transfer heat to frame/mounting plate or whatever. but in general mosfet probably does not need any addition cooling.|

It's body is its own "heat sink" and I doubt it tranfers much heat through its mounting bolts....

|michiganteddybear||yes, they can get hot. if you notice the back side of it has a metal portion. that will get hot as well as the fins (probably not as hot, but heat is what kills these).|

|BeeSea||sorry I am not familiar with what that means, additional heat sink, does that mean it dispels some of the heat? Do they get really hot??|

im running an aftermarket mosfet type conversion, and no extra grounds there (grounds thru the wiring harness, directly to the battery).
stock one I believe is the same.
mounting either to a piece of metal is recommended, as the metal will act as additional heat sink for the unit

R/R does it need to be grounded when relocated?
I am still dealing with non charging problems and trying to narrow down what the problem still is. Stator was replaced R/R was replaced. Waiting on a new battery cable coming in Wed. (it was kinda chewed up)
I have read lots of stuff on here some say yes some say no...I had this grand idea to relocate the R/R but it's not on the actual frame so if I need it grounded I will need to run a wire. I saw someone say something about the brown and white wire that it is the ground. So not sure what says all the electrical smarter than me people? Thanks!
