My hornet was running fine till the other day when I started up when leaving work the other day. I turned the ignition on and as soon as I hit the start button it lost all power. When I got it home I figured out the battery is stuffed (it had the foul egg smell) I got told by a friend that a battery just doesn't die like it did, he said that it could be the regulator rectifier. I kind of jumped the gun and tried to remove it and it was impossible to get out so I just cut the wires. I bought a new battery and bought a multimeter to see if it's getting too much charge. I need to reconnect the wires I cut but didnt take any notice of what went where. There are 3 yellow and two red and green. I know you have to connect yellow to yellow but since there are 3 yellow wires does it matter which yellow wire you connect it too? Same with the red and green??

Yes the foul smell suggests SO2 so you'll as likely find you batter fried through vastly overcharging (it has probably saved your bike's electrics). I'll probably be quite dry now, is the battery mis-shaped too?

You'll want a new R/R and Battery and connector plug/s. Yes any yellow to yellow. But read the other threads on here, you could replace the 3-yellows in one go back to the stator plug.

i am about to start, as in today 11.15.16, to replace my r/r on an '04 599. i am not really sure what i am doing. after looking at other forums i purchased a mosfet r/r and new wiring from easter beaver. what i really need is a diagram of how to wire everything. do i still need the main 30a fuse if my new wiring has a 30a in line? i am assuming i do, but as i said, i have no idea.
