So, I just took my duc into the shop - apart from the leaky gasket being repaired, I need a new battery and regulator rectifier.

Anyone know of a good place to pick these up? They want $220 for the rectifier and $100 for the battery :eek:

Re: New battery and regulating rectifier

I got a battery locally for $50 or so, and a rectifier/regulator from Electrosport for around $100. Check the sponsors, I know Ca Cycle sells regulators.

Re: New battery and regulating rectifier

I think Ca-cycleworks can help you out on both of those items. I replaced my reg/rectifier with a "Rick's". I think Chris sells Electrex. Both are more reasonable alternatives.

Re: New battery and regulating rectifier

Thanks a bunch, CA Cycle Works looks like a great site.

What is the main thing I have to worry about to get a compatible battery? (size?)

What is the model of the OEM battery?

It's big, heavy, and I run it because they last a long time.

Just ordered the rectifier from ElectroSport (ESR-530) - $109. I ordered a Power Source CB16AL-A2, which is meant to replace the YB16AL-A2, for $53 shipped. It's specs are at least as good as the OEM.

I'll follow-up once I install and run everything for a bit.

Minor thread jack. I was told that the YB in the above battery number indicated it was mabe by Yuasa, regardless of the label. Can anyone confirm this?

Can't confirm, but it makes sense, YB=Yuasa Battery?

Yep, YB indicates Yuasa.
