'09-'12 - where did you mount your reg/rec?

I'm curious to see where those of you who have track/race bikes of the same year range have mounted your regulator / rectifiers.

Pics if ya got'm

Ha! this reminds me when I was at NJMP last year this poor soul was walking around with an instructor trying to find a regulator to purchase off someone....when I asked what happened he said "I bought race fairings for my bike, sold my street fairings and the regulator that was attached to the fairing because I didn't know what it was...thought it was for street stuff so sold it, now my battery is dead". I felt soooo bad but for this fella....but still laughed pretty hard about it later.

Anyways OP...sorry I didn't lend any advice/pics, why not make a custom mount on the race fairing? I imagine it wouldn't be too hard....

I did the same thing when I converted my bike, luckily I hadn't got rid of the fairings yet ... I did how ever take my bike to the mechanic who soon found the problem and told me to search through my bodywork lol

I should make a mount, but right now I just let it sit in the U at the bottom of the race fairings near the stock location in front of the coolant overflow tank haha. I lined it with a little heat tape so it wouldn't melt anything.

I am currently in the garage bending a tweaking the stock mount to work. Lol. I just want more airflow on it. I had it under the ram air and it just gets too hot. Probably why I've burned up a stator or two.

This question gets asked enough that I actually saved this image location as a favorite :-p



I used a piece of aluminum barstock (home depot, lowes, wherever) and drilled holes in each end. I made a slight bend and moved it around the frame spur. It is attached to where one of the OEM fairing bolts goes. This moves it forward of the frame and puts the fins in such a way that it gets maximum benefit of the airflow coming through the fairings.

Hope this helps.

So last night I fashioned up the stock mount to bolt into the track fairings temporarily, but I like this spot. Great airflow for sure. I guess I'll be making this happen after this weekend.

Thanks man!

Hope you can see me mount here.

It's just a piece of aluminum angle with two holes drilled in it.

Is the oem location really that bad? Or does the reg just get hotter when racing that requires a better placement for more airflow?

I have mine ziptied to the front fairing. I have two holes drilled in the top fairing, right about where the front fender is, so you can't see it.

Having said that, the race manual tells you to put it under the tail section, like the 07-08 zx6 models are.

The OEM placement isn't bad but aftermarket track fairins don't have those nifty little mounting tabs that the bracket blots up to. I had it mounted under the ram air for a while but it barely gets any airflow. I like the suggestions so far. I'm leaning toward that left side spot that SLO put up but I do like the spot backmarker just suggested too.

Cody... I've seen the same thing in the race manual. I've also though about doing that. However that will definitely take some fabbing and re-routing of wiring in a big way lol. And the stock tray under the subframe will probably need some cutting to feed wires through. I haven't looked that closely though

FYI guys, I was going to do as the race manual suggested as well but there is a wiring harness extension that you need to purchase to give you enough room to put it there. That is why I decided to put it where it currently sits.

I mounted mine under the rear tray using the stock harness and bracket. I ended up bending the OEM bracket tabs around and threaded the bolts up through the bottom of the tray and into the studs that originally held the servo motor to avoid buying the kit bracket. The plug from the stator needs no modification and will reach, but the plug from the harness needs cut and rerouted but will reach with no extension. I ran the plugs through the gap above the rear shock and didnt have to cut the tray. The kit harness is wired for it to go under the tray with no modification to the harness but I use my bike for the street too. I'll see if I can find some pictures if anyone is interested.-Steven
