Default At3 alternative voltage regulator

I fried some wires on my At3 and I pretty much just need to rewire it. Is there a suitable aftermarket voltage regulator to replace the stock one? Would this work?

The ad says that it is a rectifier and regulator[heat sink],so I would think not. I may have one,and I'll look tomorrow. The rectifier would mean that it's for A/C.

Default No rectifier on an AT3- lha is right

As lha indicates there is no rectifier on an AT3 as the bike uses a generator to produce electrical power and not an alternator (if it did, then there would be a need for a rectifier).

I have used this man's products now a few times without issues, he seems to be quite 'quality conscious'. He does not make a unit specifically for an AT3, so you would need to contact him and ask. Here is a link to his regulator page:

Forgot to ask, how did you fry the wiring? I want to make sure I don't do the same on my at3.

Used aluminum foil instead of a fuse. Now I know better because if I did that at my job I'd get fired. But I wanted to ride it and I didn't have another fuse. But I don't regret it because it was damn nice outside.

The original is kind of bulky. I was hoping to get a smaller one and relocate it and hide a small lithium ion battery under the seat where that regulator is. I'm better with high voltage electrical systems as well as gas and water. I work on commercial equipment. I don't mess with rectifiers or regulators ever and so I didn't know which was on the bike ore really what the difference is.

Looked in stash,and unfortunately no VR. Easy find on ebay,though. An old style starter/generator shop will sell you an electronic VR made to replace the part on old cars which had generators.
