Ok I will do the three yellow wire splice tomorrow. May as well go from the stator side of the plug right through to the regulator side of the second plug. Was that 12 gauge wire I should use?

12 gauge should be plenty.

The splice job is done. Now to the right of the battery, I guess thatsthe solinoid that sits in the rubber cup? what about the black box with a 7 pin connector is that where the dog bone fuse is?

The dog bone is just under/in front the solenoid..the plastic "door" of the case folds down

Thanks RB i will take another look. Still dont know what that black box in behind the solinoid is. Its about 1" x 1.5" x 3/4" thick, and is connected with a seven pin connector.

check ur dogbone fuse if it looks overheated replace it with an inline fuse holder. it is also a weak point of the charging system :)

You'll get a neater splice if you use the same size wire as that you're replacing. Since the wire in the stator and up to the point you splice in limits the current flow anyway it would be better to continue with that size. Also that way any heat that may be generated will be dissapated along the whole length of the wire not concentrated in one spot.

I used either 12 or 14 for my splice, I also used Heat shrink Butt connectors, seemed to work good and will help make sure that the water stays out. I also would suggest replacing the dog bone fuse, with a 30amp blade. I used a holder with the rubber cover on it.

I used 12ga wire on mine with heat shrink tubing for insulation. Also I cut the entire regulator connector out and soldered all the wiring there.
