Hi Dave,
My mate says if he fits Regulator Rectifier the Direct Switch will become dead is that correct

Cheers Bob

Rectifier Replacement

Post  Druid on Thu Feb 18, 2016 7:06 pm

Hi Bob

Assuming that the bike is wired as per the standard wiring diagram, simply replacing the old rectifier with the modern silicon version should not have any effect on the direct (a.c.) lighting.

When you say "regulator rectifier" I suspect you are referring to what is actually just a rectifier i.e. a device that converts ac to dc. A regulator rectifier converts ac to dc but also electronically stabilises the dc output voltage to a fixed value.

As suggested by Mike, it is a good idea to replace the old rectifier with a new silicon rectifier since these more efficient and reliable than the old technology selenium/oxide rectifiers. By connecting a bridge rectifier as shown in the article you actually use two of the four "bridge" diodes in the package to half wave rectify the current from the two sets of alternator coils.

Regards

Dave
