Baja Designs or Trail Tech regulator/rectifier

On another topic: I am using the Baja Designs multi-function switch; anyone have any issues running full headlight power through the switch? I was going to use separate relays but it doesn't look like I have the room to mount them all. I will never be running anything more than the stock headlight.

in the begining, Trail Tech used to supply Baja Designs with the reg/rec. Some time after 2004, Baja Designs sent the Trail Tech unit off to china to be reproduced. Trail Tech still builds theirs in house.

The reason for this is that the Trail Tech R/R is significantly thicker than the stock one. When I first mounted it, the thing hung out so far that I could not go to full lock on the left, the fork tube hit it. What I ended up doing was removing the rear half of the bracket with a cutting disc and a little of the threaded bosses so the R/R would fit in between them. Check the pics, I know it's a little hard to see but I think you'll get the idea.
After I did my installation, I emailed Trail Tech with my comments and shortly thereafter, they started removing a little of the mounting tab thickness on the R?R. I'm not sure whether it was due to my comments or not, but they bought us a little room for the bolts with that change.
Best of luck!
Operationally, the Trail Tech is fine, never had any problems with it.
