Does the regulator/rectifier have to be grounded? The bracket it's bolted broke off the frame. Acerbis 5.8 tank some of the cause. Anyone relocated it & where?

Rewelded mine once, and just now since I've rewired and cleaned and fixed, I'm going to bolt it in or on the airbox. Haven't figured it out yet, but the split for the wiring goes back to under the seat, so you can go just about anywhere else.

Thanks Beechum, but the air box is plastic & hence no ground? I also looked at that for a possible location.

Ground is by virtue of the green (or maybe the black) wire. I pitched mine and replaced it with one of those fancy MOSFET units which now lives under the seat. The voltage out of the stocker (14.9 volts) seemed to be a bit high for the Antigravity LiFePO4 battery.

Vapor install with Trail Tech X2 headlight.

Due to the shape of the headlight and space in front of factory guage cluster I decided to mount the vapor here. Still need to do initial set up of the vapor but a quick start up gave me a steady tach, which is a good sign.

I gotta ask man, why did you keep the OEM dash when you installed the Vapor?

The pic I posted of the carb was NOT the carb I am actually using.........it's just a pic of an FCR 41 I found on Google Images. I don't have my carb in hand yet, as I am ordering new +4" on the throttle cables for my application. They will ship carb and cable at the end of the month (24th)

Seems redundant yes. Maybe i'll like the vapor enough to get rid of the factory 80's garbage someday or not. Maybe the bike gets sold soon and its there still and I remove the vapor. to each their own.
