Rectifier wiring
« on: January 30, 2020, 12:56:25 PM »
 I bought an Electrex reg/rect a while ago and am just thinking of getting to fit it

The plug and play connector it came with won’t work as my bike is an early K0 with the round pins.

May be a stupid question but does it matter which way round the 3 yellow wires connect from the alt to the reg/rect unit?
If you think there's light at the end of the tunnel it's usually another train !!

Paul, I'm really courious for your feedback how this reg/rect works in your K0

I bought one last summer and I got only 13.2V max with it (tested with 550K1 and 750K7 with the same result) while more than 14.1 with stock (but suffering in higher RPMs..).
I claimed to dealer (wemoto), they sent me replacement I did not test yet
