Thanks Ive Done the Mod more curios if it goes out as 2 red wires how are they being backfed to the reset of the bike since its all been bypassed. I m a little nervous right now. On board meter is showing 14.8/14.9 just hope I'm not baking the Battery.

The 2 reds out are spliced/soldered/connected into one red that goes to the battery +terminal.  Same for the blacks.

Hi  :icon_biggrin:

I was having electrical problems with my 2006 '955, with a duff battery after only 2 years of having it fitted. Checking the voltages out, I was only getting about 13 volts throughout the rev range.

I bought a Shindengen SH847 rectifier in the hope it would solve all my problems. I fitted it through the Triumph "link lead" through the bike's original wiring. I had an improvement in voltage, getting about 13.8 volts throughout the rev range.

However, I really wanted to up in the 14 volts, so I did the "Sasquatch Mod" wiring the rectifier directly through the battery via some 10AWG wire and a maxi fuse and holder. My voltage is now a steady 14.3V throughout the rev range. I was expecting / hoping for a bit more, but maybe that's down to having the original stator in ??

So I've gone from 13V to 14.3V. I'm happy with the Sasquatch Mod, so a big thanks everyone on this thread. I couldn't have done it without reading all the info on how and why to do it - cheers  :icon_salut:
Safe Riding.

Regards,
Graeme.

Would you have a partname/number or link to such a RR? Or is it the Electrex RR881? Thanks, Wim.

Unfortunately not Reubs.  The pics were lost many moons ago during a server crash. 

For info,  Electrexworld now do a RR with this mod already built in.  We were way ahead of our time......

I may have saved the original post as a Word or PDF document a couple years ago.  I will check my home computer when I get home and try and upload it. 

Cheers! 

Here is the pdf, actually had it on my work computer.... :icon_eek:

If the pdf does not show as an attachement send me a personal message with your email and I will forward it to you.
