Hi All,

Thanks for the tip Cass, I will keep that in mind, I need to read through the procedure for installing and setting up the timing a couple more times
so I am clear what has to be done before the parts get here.

Haha Jc !!  My batt recommends 14.1 - 14.8max charging. I’m not sure what a standard reg/rec puts out. If anyone can tell me that would be great!! Especially if I don’t have to replace it but so far everything I have read tells me the standard reg will be to high.

I thought I must have forgotten starting a thread on this and then noticed the missing period!

My 2c worth if your fitting a Rae-san hall effect buy a cheap 8mm ratchet spanner and grind the top flat, so you can get into the tight spot. even if you drop the motor, you are
still going to have to set the timing with the ignition on and see where it sparks so the cover needs to be put back on hence the 8mm ratchet spanner. The overflow bottle will
go back once the motor is back from the left hand side. Fiddly job!

Ps. I recommend Jumper " A ".

I have two AGM batteries. One a couple of years or so old, the other about 6. They just keep going.

 When testing charging outputs on CXs I often see brief spikes to 15.4 volts from the standard RR.

does the battery give any specific recommendations for voltage charge?

Shorai models state:
"requires a charging system output of 13.1 Volts or higher at idle, and must not exceed 15.2 volts at maximum output."
Whats a standard rectifiers/regulator output? (I'm not at home to answer the output question with multimeter on my CX)

A lot of forums suggest kwaka riders having no issues with standard rectifiers and Lithium batteries

I think I can also recall some stories about AGM batteries (Motobatt) failing on CXs cause of higher peak volts....

cheers although I already have a lithium battery in place and wired up so I need to change the reg/rec to suit,  I was really tight on space so had to do a lot of research into different battery sizes between the different lithium brands to get something that would suit my build.

ssb lithium battery will work with old rec/reg, I have one in my cx650 and 5 other bikes from 1970-2009 model bikes all work with this brand lithium battery and you can charge them with a normal charge no need to buy a lithium charger

yes I do seagrass that's why I asked for one that works with a lithium battery!!! the current one I have works fine and isn't that old but will not work with a lithium battery, hence why I am asking for a reg/rec for a lithium.   Doh

J.C You probably know that you will need a reg/rec from a later model motorcycle but just in case you didn’t you now do.
