About Solid State Regulators for Triumph Motorcycles
From the factory, British motorbikes were fitted with a rectifier and either 1 or 2 Zener diodes. Because they consist of fragile electrical components that can dry up over time or fail from vibrations. You can replace the parts themselves, but the quality of replacement rectifiers and Zener diodes leaves a lot to be desired, so we recommend replacing them with solid state regulators.
