Has anyone had any issues with the R/R?? I have HID lights on mine and they shut off when the bike is off. After some checking, the battery is receiving 12v when in idle, but it goes as far as 17-18v when revd...

I ordered a replacement from Ricks Motorsports and I'm waiting on it to replace it... I hope this solves my issue!!!

Any thoughts?

Follow me a second...Lots of peopel switched the regulator rectifier on the sv 650 due to it being a POS. The model they replaced it with was from the Honda cbr100rr. Heres a link;

Why not use that rectumfrier, I mean, well you know... on yours? It might be better than even a new original one? Its probably cheaper. Soldier in your stock connectors, and it will look original.

Not sure what the issue is but I believe the headlights go off when the bike is off.:confused:

One of the symptoms of rectifier/regulator malfunction is headlight going out, then gauges, then the power to the bike. It does sound like you could have some of the early symptoms. I have the rectifier go out on my VFR, at night, on busy highway. Luckily, my flashers still worked until I made it to the shoulder of the road.
