Bypass loom
« on: 17 July, 2018, 05:54:51 PM »
I have been trying to get hold of a bypass loom to go direct from the rectifier to the battery. I have looked at the old posts regarding this and tried contacting Westcountry windings but they will not help me because I didn't buy a rectifier  from them. Has anyone else been able to source one . It would also be helpfull to hear of anyone who has cured problems by going down that route. Thanks in advance....

Haven't seen anyone else, other than forum member Robo, mentioning this.

Based on what he Robo posted ( https://www.cbf1000.com/index.php/topic,18071.0.html -  marked up extract of his photo is attached here) it looks to me that what he was supplied with (by West Country Windings) was a Reg-Rec with standard output lead, plus a plug in 'extension lead' to provide extra length allowing connection directly to the battery instead of via the bike's existing loom.
So, it should (!?) be a simple job to DIY or get one made by a an automotive supplier.
I've had a quick look at suppliers of connectors*, but was not been able to confirm which one is the correct 'male' version (as on the bike's loom) to match the standard 'female' 2P connector on the Reg-Rec output.

Good luck. :028:

I think it does. I will check the pic against the bike  plug tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

Does this mean you've no fuse at all between the battery and the R/R ?
or have I misunderstood.
Only do it right - no bodging please.   Keeper of the failed stator list.   John.

I will be fitting a waterproof 30amp inline fuse on the live to the battery. I have purchased the female plug to connect to the r/r from Kojaycat and I am awaiting delivery. I will post results once fitted and tested.

What is the part number/code of the 'female' plug that you've purchased?
(Doesn't the r/r already have a female 2 pole connector on its output lead, so a 2 pole 'male' connector would be needed to mate with it?)

The rr has a short loom connected to it with two plugs  a 3 pin that connects to the stator and a male 2 pin that plugs into the bikes loom going to the battery. I am disconnecting from the loom and plugging it into my own diy loom which will go direct to the battery using an inline fuse, so I am using a female 2 pin plug connector. I will post the part number once I have recieved it and checked it is the correct one.

Hi guys ,I received the correct plug today ( details to follow ) and fitted my bypass loom but no difference to the voltage across the battery. I am getting 11.8 - 12.3 volts at tick over and  13.4 - 13.6 at 5,000 revs. So I replaced the new electrex rr with my old honda one and I am now getting 12.5 - 12.6 at tick over and 14.5 - 14.6 at 5,000 revs. So I will be calling Electrex tomorrow to see what they say.If anyone on here is running a new Electrosport stator with a new Electrix RR110 could they please tell me what they are getting across the battery . Thanks.....

The honda one is a bit low at tick over but OK at 5000 rpm.

Electric one definitely not right.
