I recently had a dead battery. Long story short I broke the sub frame and replaced it and I think I pinched a wire to the tail lights and it drained the battery. Different problem altogether. I went to replace the battery and found that they had mounted the rectifier to the battery. I have another battery I want to swap out old battery with however, I don’t know how to remove the rectifier.
Brand new Ducati owner. Sorry for the dumb question. Thanks for your reply
so my question is has anyone ever seen this before? And if so how Do you remove rectifier to attach it to new battery

So that's definitely not the stock location and not the stock regulator for a 749/999. I'm assuming that's what you have?
Maybe just velcroed...or glued?

Double sided foam tape? See if a large puddy knife will pry it off

Looks like mosfet unit and based on the grey in the mounting holes looks like they used 3m trim tape to install it. Dental floss works well also to pull through the tape to get it off.

That’s exactly what is was. Thanks. Now I need to get some more of that stuff to add it to new battery. Thank you very much.
I would look at relocating it, they dont put off a ton of heat but they do get hot, and not a good location for it.

...And rotate it 90 degrees so the air flows through the cooling fins.
