3 brush charging rate

Can someone walk me through the process of setting the charging rate on a 32E, 3 brush? I am using a capacitor(condensor?) in place of the cutout relay. I find that I have been using a lot of water in the battery recently. After a long ride(100 miles or so), I find that there is some water dishcharge from the battery overflow tube.

Thanks, Paul

Find an amp guage to put in line ,a low scale one.Set it by turning the third brush clockwise to increase and counter to decrease. I am running the diode set up and set it to where with the lights on high and throttle up it charges at 1/2 to 1 amp. Set this way I have had good luck with battery life and rarely have to add water. My bike has an amp guage on it allready but before I had one I took one out of an old battery charger and used it to set up with.
