    Breath no.... hot yes... melt plastic shouldnt but could if it has issues.
    In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.
    Its the little things that make the difference

            In theory yes but probably not the best constantly.

              The housing can get wet, as they tend to be a fairly well sealed unit, but the wiring should be kept dry, along with the connectors.

              They're best in a place were they can get some airflow as this is likely to extend their life. They can't be covered up entirely, as heat produced needs to escape.

              They have been known to melt the plastic/resin casting in the back of the unit when they fail, but shouldn't melt ABS plastic under normal conditions.
              R/R's are usually mounted on a metal surface like your frame or sub-frame to help dissapate heat...

                  New R1's run the regulator in the ram air ducts, just before the air filter, So be careful what type you use. the ones that fit 98-01 R1's have a large heat sink, mount behind the motor on the undertray near the shock. I know these retrofit onto Honda's very well. They don't have to be grounded as they have an earthing wire.
