all so ive noticed the rectifier/regulator gets hot hot touch it and it will burn you after afew secs is that norm?? this is the new 1 ive had fitted ;-(
What brand of R/R did they install and does it have any warranty? Did they check the R/R plug as it's known to melt itself ?
They do get very warm and/ or hot as they are semi conductors and the "fins" help them to cool.
