If it's the same as the one that comes in the DS kit you have to rewire your stator. this regulator needs this as it's not a rectifier, you have to rewire the stator to only put out DC volts now instead of both ac and dc
Uh...not exactly. Magneto's are only capable of generating AC. The BD/generic aftermarket regulator also is a rectifier. The case of the rect/reg unit is grounded to the DC output - terminal (black wire). You have two choices. 1) rewire the stator so that the magneto ground is "floated" or 2) leave the magneto grounded to the frame and isolate all of the DC "grounds " from the frame as well as the rect/reg case. The bottom line is the DC and AC circuits cannot share the same ground or the battery will not charge. As far as wiring goes the yellow leads are the AC magneto input, the red lead is the DC + and the black lead is the DC -. The blue lead is not used.
