I appreciate any thoughts you have ivan.
I've done the RD rectifier on another bike before,
a cb350 and I didn't know about the heatsink then
- but it never was a problem.
I did buy a $1.50 heatsink at RD to go along with the rectifier.
It seems fairly straight forward,
although like you, I really don't know much about wires
'cept to see if both ends are connected.
Still contemplating rewiring the whole beast.
Everything is a mess, or at least unorganized
- I can't tell what's going on.
Maybe at the end of it, I might know a little more about wires.
