  • Rectifier/Regulator to Alternator - Snip Snip

    So I am working through extending some things on the bike and forgot to label these 3 white wires so connecting them back together as they were is not really possible without re running the wires themselves. I am hoping it doesn't matter and I can put them back any which way?

    On a side note this is getting easier as I go and I am actually not minding it so much anymore.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe that it doesn't matter which way the wires go because the 3 phases are each independent from each other, in both alternator and rectifier.
    The rectifier takes only the positive AC volts from alternator thru the diodes in 3 different phases, then to the voltage regulator to out-put DC positive 12 to 14.5 volts.

      In addition, I would think if it mattered the wires would be color coded. But that's just speculation.

    Not sure what we would do without you Duke. Thanks for the info man.

      It does not matter. Its ac voltage out of stator on those wires going to reg/rec which has a bunch of diodes and coverts to dc like Duke says above.
