Hey there,

What runs off the 7v regulator? Is it just the factory temp gauge, or do other things need it?
I’m fitting an after market 12v temp gauge, so if I don’t need the regulator for anything else, I’ll probably delete it.

Thanks!

The temperature gauge is the only thing powered by the 7 volt regulator..

FWIW, it also powers the fuel gauge on models that have them. I've had bikes with just a temp gauge, just a fuel gauge and one of each, all of which had basically the same 7V reg.
