Replacing the Voltage Regulator on my Outlander XT

This is probably going to be a pretty short post - it's a very simple job to do.

My new regulator finally arrived after about a month of waiting, but again, it was $35 instead of the $215 that I was to be charged for buying it locally.

Finally arrived!  Note Kenny's artwork.
Remove the old voltage regulator from beside the battery - use a 10mm socket.

Nothing to it, two bolts and a plug and play connector.
Unplug the six contact connector, and plug the new one in.

Bolt the new regulator to the frame and you're good to go.

Unfortunately, I didn't see much different to my battery voltages - either the AGM battery operates at a much lower voltage than I expected, or my problem is elsewhere.  We'll see.  At least my setup that allows the ATV to charge off the garage power is still going strong.
