Need Help WR400 Electrical Question
Posted April 09, 2014 - 07:22 PM
My question is can i start the bike with out the regulator?
Does the CDI work off the regulator?
Can I put a universal regulator?
Thank you for your responses.
I live in south america and spare parts for this model bike are very hard to find and expensive.

Here's the wiring diagram for your bike. The regulator controls the voltage coming off the lighting coil. I see a lead going from the lighting coil to the CDI. If the regulator was missing, the voltage to the lights, and CDI would go high enough to burn out the bulbs. I don't know what it would do to the CDI but I wouldn't risk it.
You might be able to use an AC regulator from another bike. Trail Tech makes an AC regulator that would work. Most of the universal regulators I see are for bikes with a DC system, you would have to reconfigure the whole system and may need a battery for them to work.
Do you have ebay where you live? I see lots of used voltage regulators that would work on your bike.

How do I know if a bike is AC?

coz all bikes are AC
the reg/rec converts the AC current from the stator to DC for charging the battery etc
