Relocate Regulator/Rectifier

10 posts in this topic

Anyone relocate the R/R on a WR450?

I have the Trail Tech unit and don't like how the left fork tube hits the wires at full lock. I want to relocate it but there isn't a whole lot of room on this bike.

I have the one from Baja Designs which I think are the "same". The wires are about 1/8" away from the frame so they don't touch. The fork tubes do not hit the R/R either.

Here's my setup (wr400f). I had to saw off the upper part of the stock regulator mount to make it fit

Yes, I removed the stock Reg, installed a 150w TrailTech RR unit, upgraded to the WR426 stator (130W), floated the ground, installed a battery and a 15A fuse.

Nobody out there has done this? There must be lots of people with a Trail tech R/R on their bike.

Like you, on my '08 I did not like the clearance at the fork. I zip tied mine to a frame tube at the top rear of the airbox. My second choice of location was to bolt it to the bottom of my airbox on the outside (plenty of room and no concern for water as these things are sealed). I think the newer units have the mounts milled a little for extra clearance, but I've never been thrilled with the stock mounting location.

Thanks for the replies! Does anyone know if it needs to be grounded to the frame?

No, it doesn't
