01 1100 Custom Voltage Regulator ?

I was wondering do I have to remove the exhaust to get to the regulator as it has tested bad and needs to be replaced . Any info on replacing it would be great .

I think it depends on your exhaust.. I was able to replace mine (99' Custom) without removing the exhaust.. I was able to remove the allen head bolt and pull the cover out the top behind the exhaust.

And unless your exhaust is sitting a whole lot closer to the frame, I don't know why you'd have to? There's only one bolt to remove, then you just pull the cover towards the exhaust until it's removed and then up and out..

GL!

In the process of putting it back together right now . I had to unbolt the exhaust from the heads and take the bolts out of the exhaust bracket to be able to make room to pull the shield out but still a pia. I also tested the old regulator and the were all .636 across the board accept one read at 606 so I hope this solves my problem as the stator tested fine and was charging gd at idle and higher rpms but the voltage across the battery was jumping all over the place. Fingers crossed.

....and then have room to unscrew the bolts holding the reg/rec and access to unplug it for removal. I always loosen the exhaust first.

also, do yourself a favor and drill some holes in the front of the cover to allow better air flow across the reg/rec. It'll definitely help it's life span.

My Cobra pipes must be a lot closer as I can not even pull the tabs all the way out to even move the cover .
