    Looking at a charging swap. I understand the differences between Omega/Enduralast AND checked the EME site on rec/reg locations.

    With that:

    Those of you with a ST or G/S, where have you mounted the reg/rec unit?

    Cheers

    Out of curiosity,

    It appears the reg/rec could be mounted--a touch---deeper to allow for the side cover?

    probably could be mounted more deeply. these things heat up, i am told, and i wanted as much air flow around the unit as possible.

    Thanks OLH, thought it could be recessed a bit more.

    Did not know there was an upgrade to the upgrade on the reg/rec.

    Good to know.

    On a '92 GS, I placed it under the tank.
    It lasted 9 years (it crapped out this summer).
    EME sent the replacement and gave me a big discount (love those folks).

    I can attest first-hand to the damn R/R units getting hot under load.

    I just stumbled over this chart which shows how important airflow is...
    I didn't realize that some R/R units have over-heat and/or over voltage protection
