Well, hopefully someone could help me with my WR 450 03 (Aussie Mod/Stock lighting setup) regulator/rectifier problem...

Some time ago I happened to notice that my headlamp was not working, so i just left it for some time with out replacing. Time goes by and find out that now all my lights have blown... After doing a bit of fault finding it came down to a faultly regulator/rectifier, which i had already replaced not long ago, due to it not charging the battery.

What causes the regulator/rectifier to burn out, particularly on the AC curcuit? Was it the due to me not repalcing the headlamp straight away, causing the resistance to increase then blowing the rest of the blubs, to then damaging the regulator/rectifier? Or maybe it have been the fact i have charging the battery whislt the battery was connected to the bikes terminals?

Any help would be great...

Cheers

You need to float the ground wire and install a Baja Designs HD REC/REG unit. Contact Ben or Dan at Baja Designs. This will solve your problems. It is an easy fix that can be done yourself.

If "(Aussie Mod/Stock lighting setup)" is the same mod as described in Baja Designs stator mod sheet, you need to reconnect all lights through a independent switch to the battery.

Your "old" yellow wire coming from the stator can not be used for anything. It needs to be disconncted at the headlight .
