    Regulator/Rectifier

    Hi folks, went to start my 2004 RXP today and noticed a burning smell from the battery compartment, the rectifier was really hot and smelled of burning plactic.

    Has anyone any idea what could be wrong with it?

    Cheers

    Phil.

    Replace the rectifier. They are very sensitive to shortcutting, just a small touch and it goes. I'm not sure if they are prone to go just out of nowhere tho.

    I had the ski running for about 30 seconds or so on the garden hose, turn it off then I noticed the burning smell form the rectifier.
    The rubber seal on the rectifier was perished and like I say it was really hot.
    Is there anyway of testing the rest of the circuit to make sure it is not something else.

    Cheers
