    Hi guys,
    Can you help?
    I have 2 issues.
    The first is electrical. If I ride to work and back in the dark for a week, by the end of the week battery is flat. Looks like the Headlight power is overtaking the battery charging. Is this likely to be a rectifier issue and what is the simplest mod without lots of rewiring?
    Also...
    Somewhere on this forum a couple of months ago I found a part number and description for the Speedo pulse generator, as originally supplied by the manufacturere (Honeywell?). Anyway i thought I would note it down, but I need one and cant find the note I made nor can I find the original post on this site. Tried various searches but no luck. Any ideas?.

    Welcome Colin , first of all you have realy posted this in the wrong section as Tech tips is advice on how to fix things that have been previously posted and not for questions on how to fix things, but never mind it sounds like your regulator has given up the ghost or if its the original with the brown connectors in place then these may be going into melt down. It sounds like you need to replace the regulator either with a Mosfet from a late Honda CBR or a Honda Goldwing rectifier. Both of these mods are well documented, just do a search for Mosfet or Goldwing rectifier and that will put you on the right path. Just put a couple opf links on for you. Steve

    Lightbulb $5 sealed connectors

    RTV silicone blue, came out much cleaner than I expected, especially compared to the black rubber 'electrical connector sealant'. Color choice is at discretion, I'd stay away from the 'copper' stuff though as it's conductive.
