SURE! If you want to "smoke test" your wire harness and electro's. Shocked

Especially if your running a generator. At high rpm's I believe they can produce a fair amount of juice, WELL above 6 or 12 volts, (depending on your setup) w/o.
Most new altenators have a regulator built in. If your running an altenator, check the manufacturer to be sure.

Absolutely keep the regualtor in the circuit if the answer is no to any of the above.

You have an internally regulated alternator there. All you have to do is run the B+ wire to the battery and the small spade terminal to the idiot light.
