    Rectifier mount

    Basically my bike came with the Tyga kit already on it. After months of wondering why my ass became so hot when sitting in traffic for only a couple minutes, I discovered that the previous owner had mounted the rectifier underneath the seat (using an assortment of random bolts, directly to the sub frame, right near the rear fuel tank bolt). Anyway, I realised that it was mounted further up the subframe on the side but I guess it doesn't fit with the Tyga tail? Anyway, I made a small mount using some sheet metal which hangs vertically from a bolt on the subframe, but it's a bit of an eyesore and not as solid as I'd like (I am suspecting it'll flap a little bit).

    I was wondering how people with Tyga kits mounted their regulator/rectifiers?

    Under the seat. No other real good place for it.

    Tyga has it in the manual to be mounted under the seat

    Ive seen some people mount it at the heel guard

    Hmm, that seems the case after digging up the fitting instructions. I think I'll make up a better bracket to fit it to.

    When you install it as well, put some pc cpu thermal paste between the rec and bracket, this should help transfer heat better. Also make sure that the bracket is also has a bigger surface area at the mounting point for the rec, as the bracket will act as a heat sink, hence why they are usually mounted to the subframe.

    The thermal paste is a genius idea; I think I have some laying around. Funnily enough, the way the Tyga guys did it (at least in their photos), has only the edge of the rectifier touching the subframe. If I come up with anything good I'll be sure to post it.
