  • Cutting rectifier wires for gap mod.

    Im currently doing the gap mod.

    And I need to relocate the rectifier (heat sink looking thing) if I cut the wires and lengthen them, can this cause any harm to the rectifier (heat sink looking thing) or any thing else on my bike electronically.

    Rectifier it is! .

    As long as you don't cross any up, and run the correct size wire and do a good job on the soldering, all will be fine.

        What exactly does the Rectifier do? I have been wondering about this for a few days now and haven't gotten around to asking.

        Also, what is the Gap Mod?

              correct me if im wrong, but doesnt the rectifier change the AC voltage produced from the alternator into DC volts?

                No corretion needed, it also regulates the voltage as well.

                              arrh now i see but dont you get a heap of road grit all over it.

                              I cut out what plastic i had too, the computer is in the standard spot. And i mounted the regulator/rectifier in the boot so I'll need to lengthen the wires by a few inches.
