Cycle Electric regulators are built to last. Their rugged design is capable of handling overloads and continuous operation. Top quality materials and military spec. assembly processes ensure a low failure rate and a long service life.
To control voltage on Harley-Davidson alternators, rectifying regulators from other brands generate electric energy first, and then, when it is not needed just turn it into heat again. This causes maximum stator current and temperature load at all times. Cycle Electric rectifying regulators use a more intelligent approach: they make the alternator generate just the right amount of energy to reliably supply all current loads (battery charge, lights, ignition, stereo etc) by blocking current to control voltage. This reduces stator current, resulting in lower temperature and less drag on the motor which means a more efficient operation. The largest and most noticeable benefit is a smoother charge to the battery. This means less battery maintenance and a longer life for your battery .

Low Voltage Regulators
Low voltage regulators have a max charging voltage of 13,8 V instead of the usual 14,5 V. There are cases, where the lower charge voltage is advisable: e.g. when the battery sits in the oil tank, as in Softails, where overheating of the battery has been known during hot weather, or when a 6 V to 12 V conversion places the 12 V battery inside the oil tank, where overheating of the battery also may be a problem.
Also, when using a modern lithium ion battery, the maximum charge voltage is 14,6 V. The stock regulator cut off voltage of 14,5 V sits right on this limit. Using a low voltage regulator positively avoids damage to the battery. If you are unsure about which regulator type to choose, contact our service team, they'll be happy to sort you out.
