    What are the defects?
    The regulator/rectifier power module circuit board may have absorbed moisture during storage in highly humid conditions. This may have reduced the strength of the adhesive used to affix the circuit board to the aluminium case. The heat generated from the power module can cause the power module to lift from the case.

    What are the hazards?
    This condition can cause excessive heat on the module, which can result in insufficient charge current being provided to the battery. This may cause discharging of the battery and can lead to engine stalling or non start condition. This may pose a hazard to the rider or other road users.
