Honda vfr800 regulator rectifier burned


Every Honda rider knows it and it happend to me yesterday.

After swapping out my miles speedo for a km/h version and swapping the tacho for a 2000 model I went for a test ride and it died on me.

Fuel pump didn’t work and the FI light kept burning, after replacing the main fuse everything worked again but the smell of burned plastic was obvious 🙁

btw if someone has a LCD with km an celcius on it laying somewhere then send me a message 🙂

So, new rectifier is on route and already thinking about 3D printing something to hold a PC fan for fresh air to the regulator.

Oh and something with an ESP12 and ds18b20 comes to mind… 🙂

Soon…
