There are a few questions in there, so I will try to address them all. The Bueler Time Delay relays are unlike the vast majority of other relays you will find. The difference is that these relays are so-called "smart" relays. They have embedded circuitry that handles the triggering as well as the timing functions of the timed relay. For most relays (i.e. "...

Not Necessarily an Issue There is not a guarantee that there is a problem with your charging system if the rectifier on your 1999 Suzuki GSXR keeps burning out. Splashing through water is very unlikely to have been the root cause of the issue. Suzuki Rectifiers Your era of Suzuki is unfortunately notorious for burned out rectifiers and stators. ...

Possible, sure. But you need some beefy diodes that can handle an amperage of at least 50A, and at the right spec.(think about type, voltage drop, switching time, reverse blocking specs, temperature...) Otherwise you might get some unexpected magic happening in your electronics, or release the magic smoke in them. I'd rather look for a rectifier unit as a ...

First the disclaimer: I don't know much about motorcycles – really all I know about motorcycles is inferred from cars and bicycles. But I do know a fair amount about electrical systems. That said… TL;DR – the headlight may have put your system out of balance by enough that your battery can't make up for the additional load and the alternator is always ...

Firstly, please add more information: What is to make and model of you bike? What are the exact modifications you've done (with spec of the components)? Now, when you say "under full load" I assume that you mean with all optional electrical system on and at full settings (like with the high beam on). If that's what you mean, then your horn will function ...

It is possible to replace all the parts of the alternator, including the diodes in the rectifier plate. The only sure dead of an alternator is a breakage of the case. Even a defect in one of the windings is curable, although it requires expensive rewinding. The main problem is that the diodes are pressed into the diode plate and look sturdier than they ...

If you know the basics of how an alternator works, you can replace the bridge by pulling the wires from the stator to a 3 phase diode bridge like the MDS100A (which you can get for around 11 bucks from the usual suspects.), and removing the original bridge. Some (most) alternators have an extra half bridge going to the regulator and the warning light, you ...

[answer in progress] One of the reasons regulators burn out is overheating. That is why people put it outside the frame on some bikes to get better airflow around them, and out of the cooker. However, given that you had done that, it must be other reason. I would suspect connections, but then again, you had replaced the harness (seems a bit rash, replacing ...

I wasn't able to find a picture of that part online, but drawing of the alternator parts shows it is a typical heat sink with diodes on it. Some of the alternators that I have seen have button diodes that are soldered in to holes that are drilled in the heat sink. The entire thing is heated up to melt the solder and then the diodes come out. More modern ...
