    Electrical Question for you fellas

    Ive posted this up on a couple of thumper boards no responses yet. Anyway the voltage rectifier on my 86 XT600 is on the Fritz. I have found one from a 90 ( which is electric start ) . Do you think there would be an issues using it , after all all it does is convert AC to DC . My only though would be the incoming AC might be different with the later model . Any thoughts on this

    if the 2 units match, appearance wise....and if the connector plugs are the same......i would be incline to give it a try. its not uncommon for a part like that to have multiple applications. but, im no freakin electrical fruit loop... if the 2 bike have the same stator....that would be a plus i would think.
    dont give a dam what other people think..
    whaddaya think about that...

    i would think that the newer would supply a little more power to the system for the electric start, but what do i know. personally, i would shell out the funds for the right application. JMO
    if you choose to try the '90 model rectifier, keep an eye on the battery fluid level. it may boil out over time.

    Some dealers can look up a part number, then look up all the bikes that use that part number.

    Found a correct one on E-Bay
    45 shipped

    Once I got a new battery in her, the rectifier started to work correctly : Anyway good to have a spare
