Hi Dick      how (where) did you install it  ?   thanks

Hi Jacques.  I followed the directions that Roger gave in his post which you show above.  I installed the Schottky between the #3 post and the "charge" post on the Ducatti.  I put two female blade connectors on the Schottky diode wires and this replaces the small white wire that used to run between these two posts.  Does this answer your question?

There was a post on this forum about the shockey diode. Roger actually posted it though it was chanik who discovered it. You have to use the correct diode. It gives a part number. Sorry not near a machine to go searching for it right now.

I believe this is the diode chanik was recommending.

hum...  not sure  ... here is what Chanik wrote in his previous post

....'' You use a 1 amp 200V diode which is available at any electronics store if you read 13.1V - 13.2V at the battery while it is running. The number for the diode is 1N4001 thru 1N4007. If you only need a .4V increase then a 1N5817 SCHOTTKY 1 amp 20V (http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/category/205/Diodes/1.html). Do not use any other brand as when I tested the others they were off by . 3V -.4V too high. This 1N5817 seems to be good for most Ducati regulators in a CT. The band on one end will face up. It goes between the Regulator Rectifier "R" slot and the "Charge" slot. There is a small white wire already between these two slots and this is what you are replacing and then that small wire needs to be clipped in half. This will raise your output charging voltage .4 volts with the 1N5817.

He specified the SCHOTTKY  brand   ..and  this is what Dick ( Runtoeat ) installed with success. 

I will go with that myself...
