Camouflaged the power wire with some electrical tape. I didn't like the red showing
My original plan was to cut the harness off of the old rectifier and use it to wire the new rectifier to the stator plug. But after I started examining it I realized the OEM wires were in horrible shape and went straight to the stator plug and cut the plug off and wired it into the new rectifier plug. The Stators harness is long enough to reach around to the rectifier.
Stock rectifier plug
Every things now wired up with a 30amp fuse on the power wire close to the battery.
This is at idle::: 5000rpm showed the same voltage.
And here's my baby all put back together, running, and the fingerprints and grease marks wiped off.
OMG what's the white thing in the background and what's it doing to my bike?
I thought i'd drop in and say i grabbed one of these mosfet regulators and its cured my charging systems woes.
A few months ago my factory reg and stator went out, i put a different stator in and put another regulator i got from ebay, and had problems with my voltage fluctuating and headlights dimming when revved high due to losing voltage.
the company was stand up and had good customer service and i got my money back, im thinking i just got a bad apple of the bunch.
anyways i didnt want to jack around with it any more so i got this mosfet style unit and wired it in and it made a big difference, headlight doesnt dim, and voltage is rock solid 14.2, very smooth.
Very happy with this unit and would highly reccomend. Hes put together a great kit with all the connectors and wiring to hook it all up.
Used an 08-09 reg but mounted it on the right side where Suzuki mount them on the later 1000s. The stator wires just reach if you run them over the top of the intake ports. The other lead `reaches easily.
The idle screw can still be accessed with it on the RHS.
I tried mounting one in the LHS of the tail but it ran too hot. Not enough air flow there.
I am now well versed in trouble shooting the GSX-R600/750 charging system and thank full that I installed a Dynatek Charging system monitor several years ago. The monitor probably saved me from getting stuck on the side of the road some where.
Its a shame my original 5 year old battery is still going strong and it was my rectifier. I ordered a Mosfet from Jack at Roadster Cycle for $115.
I sent him a Papal and in 43 minutes had an email saying that my rectifier was on the way priority mail. I sent him a thank you on his quick customer service.
Jim at Eastern Beaver in Japan has an awesome wiring kit for the Mosfet that I ordered that will make the install a piece of cake. I got the Part B harness with the optional sealed connector for $60 shipped.
This regulator also shunt's unused current to ground, the only difference is that a MOSFET is more efficient (less voltage drop across it), so it doesn't get as hot as a SCR based R/R.
For shunt type R/R to run coolest, all accessories must draw current. So if the headlights are disabled - that current would also have to be shunted to ground meaning the R/R would run hotter.
The pictures of the install are good, if wireloom hasn't been installed to protect the wiring from getting rubbed against the frame and other components, I would wrap the wires with it. You will be surprised how easily wiring can get damaged.
I would like to add that with the MOSFET R/R that shunts more efficiently that the stator ends up dissipating the extra power. Something to keep in mind if the OEM stator is marginal rating wise. Or to put it another way not as reliable when run hard.
Haven't tried the mosfet but I'm on my third reg/rec now, so may get one of these as a spare for whne my current one goes!
First one, OEM died just before the three year, 4000 mile, mark and the bike hadn't been used for over a year. I then got one from Electrex based on advise from the AA which lasted an amazing 5 months, 3000 miles. Now just had another OEM fitted by Suzuki two weeks ago, so I'll see how that one goes and can strongly suggest against the Electrex model!
Also, the Electrex was a bit bigger than the OEM on, which meant I had to rotate the horn/hooter further toward the center of the bike and bend the bracket slightly back (it was touching the radiator before this and thus not working.
The Day Dreaming Sheep, try moving it away from the radiator to a cooler location.
Heat is the main enemy. The stock rectifier had a part number change, so I am not sure if it has been improved. If you use stock Suzuki I would go with the 08-09 R/R. They are probably more reliable along with the new mounting position on those models.
Maybe even one of the older k1 k2 ones might be better. Didn't see too many problems with those models, although they were in the tail section which on those models was well exposed to air flow.
I'm working on this now, the little blue caps do not come close to keeping the wire terminals inside the plug. Any movement on the wire and they pop right out. Going to epoxy them into the plugs or something to keep them in there.
Hi guys,I recently bought a gixxr and still rocking the stock exhaust.
I really like the AR and SC exhausts but it seems they don’t make it for our old bikes. Sooo, I think I’m going for a replica :o Don’t hate :p
So my question, anyone know of headers or link pipe for slip on that’s 60mm in...
I'm interested to learn what is most owners city street cruising rpm? I try to keep mine under 5k. I don't think the GS becomes the GSXR until 8k+ after which in gears 2+ hyperspace is entered. Below which in normal traffic the GSXR is just a sexy looking race bike.
I picked up a k6 600 last year and immediately faced an issue where whenever I was coming to a stop and I pulled the clutch in, the bike would lose power and kill the engine, as if there was no idle / I hit the killswitch
It would usually start right back up when I press the started and...
So my wife decided to pull all the furniture from the dining room and starts a restoration project of a 2003 gsxr750. I have to say so far so good! Piece by piece it’s coming together! She’s pulling the gas tank and sanding it so I can paint it. Cerakoted the wheels for her today. She’s excited!
