    I'm finally getting around to the re-assembly of my 69' R3. it's been so long ago I'm having trouble remembering things. Where does the Zener diode get mounted along with the regulator and horn relay.
    I'm thinking a couple of these could go on the tool box top but I'm not sure. Then there is the condenser pack location? I'm going to install a Boyer so I won't need it but it will be there for show anyway.
    Been a long while since I've been here ,,,, my how this forum has changed :)

    The R3 used the A65 frame but modified, you could look at the A65 from the same year to give you a clue, its not going to be 100% definitive but in the absence of any other info at least its a start. For 69 both the B44 and A50/A65 had the Zener mounted on a finned heat sink that was bolted to the underside of the fork bottom yoke.
