Well just had my regulator go out on the trail, up in smoke.
Is this the usual form of death? I thought they went out with a whimper maybe doing a murder suicide with your battery?


Anyway, I replaced with a Rick's that thankfully due to the OC Wisdom I purchased on my last trip home.
I think I have now used all my suggested replacement parts.

A couple of questions?
1) My bike was running a temperature, not overheating but above normal I thought. After replacing the regulator, I appear to be normal again. Is it possible that the two are related?
2) I did not relocate the regulator. I see lots of interesting locations provided here. Is it worth it for the new regulator? The old guy lasted more than 30K miles.
