Post $14 regulator swap in 2002 chetak Reply with quote
hi guys, i got a $14 four wire regulator off of eBay. it's for the clone scooters and ATVs with displacements between 125cc and 250cc. i swapped the pigtail like so. red to red, black to green, and the other two wires are interchangeable. i just took it for a five mile test ride and it seems to be working fine.

Excellent - thanks. Ride it some more and make sure that your are maintaining voltage and charging the battery and then let us know about your success with a link to the auction. Spares are important.

I would love some more info on this. I have a 2002 with a bad regulator/rectifier and need to find a replacement. Is this still working for you? Any links to the ebay auction.

Anyone know of any other replacements that would work?

12 volt DC electricity and its required 'regulator & rectifier' are standard items on bazillions of motorized things, from lawn mowers to autos.

These folks are recommended in the motorcycle community: http://oregonmotorcycleparts.com/

Does anyone know the name of the connector on the bajaj stock regulator (regulator side)? It's female?

Thanks Rufasswan. I ordered one off ebay that should work OK. I just need to adapt the wiring similar to the OP. If someone is looking for a swap, Columbia Scooters has one that they are using to substitute the bajaj model.

Post I vouch for the efficacy of this solution Reply with quote
Works. Totally works. I bought a generic regulator for a GY6 chinese scooter (they're everywhere and parts aplenty) and followed this exactly. Red to red, green to black and hooked the yellow to yellow and the yellow w/red to the white.

The columbia scooter regulator was, I wanna say either $65 or $85 (w/o tax or shipping) and I got this for, I think $30 delivered. They also told me that pretty much any 150cc 4 wire regulator should work just fine as long as you figure out the wires.

I just did this about a month ago. I bought the part off e bay for about $12. It works great and was very easy to do.

This should be a sticky!!!

Thanks you to the person who originally posted the excellent photos and instructions.

I sold my bike shortly after i posted this how-to regulator swap. Yesterday i saw it for sale and went to look at it. I was happy to see my conversion was still in service after another 2500 miles.

so there's that. Smile

Post Generic Regulator rectifier Reply with quote
Following your advice I bought a standard generic rectifier for 150cc scoot on Amazon for $12 shipped
It has 5 wires coming out ie black ground wire. What should I do with that as my 2002 Chetak seems to only have
4 wires and no ground. An aside it seems as though my new one looks more like your stock ones than my existing stock [/img]
