I'm in Damascus for the moment, waiting for a visa for Iran. I am staying in Gaziantep for a few days when I go back up, then to Dougobayazit to Iran, with a stop in Tatvan.
On the other reply around heat... I can tell you that the rectifier does not heat up at all. I run without extra wattage, just stock, and even when I was at the Dead Sea (122F), it felt no hotter than the frame. Shows 14.2 volts at all times. Works like a charm so far ... 13K miles or so...
