On the bike I just picked up I just now got a charged battery hooked up. Immediately I noticed the rectifier gets pretty damn hot. Is this normal? Seems to do this even with the key off. Doesn't seem right to me....

The problem was sort of my fault. And I didn't state it because it's somewhat emabarassing!!!

For some reason the bike's power wire's were reversed in color. So the problem was...... the battery was in opposite! I didn't think to follow the colors down and double check. But when I followed the red wire down it was the ground. Shocked me. And I don't thing anything is fried, seems ok so far...
