I was looking on other bikes and their rectifiers recently but I still have no satisfactory solution. IŽd like to hide it somewhere it the under-seat area... Any suggestions or experience?

BTW this is the weirdest locations I have seen: BMW F800 engine “cooled” rectifier .

I moved my dakar VR from under seat/ behind engine to out in the breeze on the side of the engine. Much more betterer voltage regulator dumps heat much more efficiently.

You can see it on the right side of engine . Not sure where I'd move the scrambler one to. Sometimes I think it sticks out like dogs balls but then I forget all about it when riding
