    4tec voltage rectifier wiring

    My 2000 GTX RFI voltage regulator took a dive this weekend. i have a extra 4tec voltage regulator from my 05 speedster. i was reading that these are better to use because the RFI pulls more voltage and stresses the OEM rectifier. my question is there are three yellow wires on the harness from the stator. when i fit them to the RFI plug, is there any order for the yellow wires or does it matter?

    Doesnt the 4tec rectifier need air flow to keep it cool? On my speedster the rectifier was mounted on the intake and even had a cut out for the back of the rectifier to get air flow from the intake air. Not much air flow in the engine comparment of a ski.

    They mount it in the air intake system that feeds the supercharger so it has air being pulled over the fins when the engine is running. However, many do a mod to the stock air intake system where a length of Kanaflex tubing replaces the OEM air intake. This is done for performance gains. Anyway, when this is done, the rectifier is normally left in the open air of the hull and will run warmer than normal. I would not like to say by how much this decreases the life of the item.

    Ok so overheating the rectifier doesnt seem to be a issue. Thanks for the input guys!
