|BMW vs. CJ750 Charging system by
The old BMW boxers use the same "Bosch" style charging system, although someone says that the rotors will not fit onto a CJ750. Shame! Maybe I should take mine off my BMW R100/7 and try it...
Anyhow the diode boards and regulators are the same and I read, many times, that the regulators are a weak point.
I'd replaced the one on my BMW with a higher spec one from Thunderchild together with my diode board when it packed up (the rubber mounts perished and grounded it). So, it made sense to use the same tried and tested kit.
|The voltage regulator is about £10 in real
money (plus some postage). Tthis is a picture of a
similar one, but it shows the terminal identities.
It's a three pin in a small metal case and here's the diagram of how it fits onto a BMW:
