I am looking at using a lithium-ion battery in my GL500. Would I need to replace the factory Reg/Rec to use the different battery type? What is the main difference in an aftermarket regulator?

Thanks

The OEM RR is old school and intended for old school lead acid batteries.

As such its voltage control is a little loose for a LI battery.

You should really fit a mosfet RR or your bike could potentially go up in flames when the LI battery internally torches itself from a charging spike.
