The stator on my '82 GL1100 is shot and I am going to put in a new one. But should I also replace the R/R as an extra precaution?



I definately do not want to go through another stator replacement any time soon.



Thanks

Brian

Rectifier / regulator...not regulator / rectifier. Or is it relaxation / recuperation? :)



Edit: Second thought it could be remove / repair. I hate accronyms. Someday the world will blow up because of them. :) FWIW.

I wouldn't unless it was bad. Regulator / rectifier will not hurt the stator in any case. Easy to replace if the need ever arrises.

Me neither, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Since it's easy to get at there's no advantage changing it without and indication that there's a problem with it. I would check the connectors around it. They can become heated from corrosion and melt the plastic or blue the connector pins which can cause trouble.

+1. Actually, I guess it's +2. Except in my case, it's "If it ain't broke, don't broke it".

If I was changing the stator, I'd change the regulator also. It's not that much more work and you've got new components with a back-up regulator...

But that's just me.....:D

1100 charging systems are pretty reliable except for the stator connector, I wouldn't worry about the R/R.
