It really was very straight forward and easy. I was able to get the wire out by just removing the clips that hold it in. Much easier and safer than hacking at it with a die grinder.
My question isn't about the mod itself though, but how do I wire in the new recitifier/ regulator? Any suggestions?? Thanks, Steve

Tell me what you gain from these modifications ???
Alot more charging power. The stock battery charging system puts out just barely enough DC amperage to keep the battery alive. I am doing this modification because I am running an HID light. The stock headlight uses 12vac so I have to do the mod to get more DC Power with enough wattage to run the light. Steve

I found the the wiring on there web sit in the tech section under wiring.It shows you how to just unplug 2 plugs under the tand then replug the new plugs in basically.I'm thinking of doing this to charge the battery better while running .I'm trying to under stand why i need to change the light wiring and possibly globes?.Is this because my lights presently are running on a.c from the stator?.
Where did you find the instructions for the wiring? The only instructions I could find were for the KTM.
After you do the floating ground mod to the stator and rewire the harness with the new regulator/rectifier the old headlight wiring wont be connected to anything.
I recieved the Trail Tech reg/rec as planned and it didnt come with any instructions but there is a simple wiring schematic on the side of it that I think will help a bit. Steve

Go to there main page then click on - TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE - then WIRRING DIAGRAPHMS - THEN WR 450 RECTIFIER.
Hope this helps.
Are we talking about the same website? What site are you talking about 450High? I can't find anything on the trailtech.net site except for info on a KTM conversion. Thanks for any help.
