BMW Dnepr / electrical connection

After the installation of a BMW engine, first euphoria prevails about the good torque, the real working ignition, etc..
Very quickly a realization comes that the torque only works when the engine starts, which fails often for lack of battery voltage.
This is particularly annoying in winter when the heated grips empty the battery.

The solution: Use a regulator other than the original BMW

Also Important is a ground wire from the negative pole of the battery connected directly to engine - or transmission case, otherwise the best regulator does not work (cross section mine 10mm2).

A good idea is to solder all crimp connections additionally.

Further a larger battery is recommended. Te best is a "Triple amp" with 24 amp's or a "Hawker" that is pretty the same.
