relocation

Besides making sure you have a good ground between rectifier and frame, nope, just extending the wires. Just make sure they are good connections when you extend them. I personally would soldier and shrink tube them instead of just using connectors. A loose connection in your rect wires can kill the rest of your lectrics.

In between bikes









this one is key. The rectifier gets really hot and if you do not provide good cooling (flat surface to transfer heat for some, good ground, vented area), you may be asking for problems.
Other than that, should be good, now go have fun with your rectumfire.

It's between the radiator and the header. It's a known fault by Honda I threw a 05-06 heat shield on it and it still over heats.

Therefore I want to move it somewhere else less... Hot. More airflow.

I have about 8 inches of cable play to choose a location, before I have to cut the wires.

If you're having issues with failure I can and understand moving it. Whether you move it or not, I have always considered mounting a small electronics axial fan of maybe 2 to 3 inch blowing directly on or pulling air across the rectifier. I never tried it. But you have to consider what the air flow may be at speed when a fan would do nothing. I have wondered wtf the manufacturers are thinking mounting a rectifier behind a radiator.

It should be grounded thru its bracket to motor or frame and thru its wiring. I have found that splicing into the factory ground wire and running an extra wire to ground to frame helps honda's rectifier issues (at least the older ones like I ride)

As to where? see if there is room just around the side of where it sits now or towards bottom of motor. I wouldn't go too long with the extra wiring though, you don't want to create too much resistance in the wiring.
