Regulator connector repair

The connectors on my regulator aren't burnt up yet but they were getting there, so I eliminated them all together and bump the wire gauge up one.

Looks pretty clean, above my typical maintenance routine, well done, hope it extends the life.

The other thing to do is either relocate it to a place with lots of air flow or drill cooling holes around where it mounts..It needs lots of air movment around it.

I think there was a SB for honda and early yamaha 600's

I'll definitely look in to doing that.

I replaced the wires and removed my connector as it was leaking oil and melting.Oil was coming up through the wires from the engine causing resistance and a short in the connector.

Kawasaki's recall procedure was to cut open the wires and fill them with glue.

This never worked and usually made things worse.

I cut and removed the connector and replaced the old cooked wire with a heavier gauge and used lugs,solder and heat shrink and have not had an issue in the 50,000k since.
