Default g16 overcharging

so i just installed my new starter/gen from rare electrical in atlanta. i ordered it on tuesday at 4pm. it comes UPS wednesday at 2pm. wow.

anyway, i read that a bad voltage regulator will cook the starter so i checked the voltage with the cart in neutral. it runs up to almost 18v then starts bouncing between 16v and almost 18v. i have 2 old vr's that do the same thing. both bad? probably.

so while i'm waiting for the new vr to come, would i be better off unplugging the vr and running off of the battery or will it damage the starter if i run it for a couple days like it is or should i just be patient and wait for the part? btw - i don't run it for long periods when i do drive it.

I have never encountered starters getting bad because of no VR. It's like having a non-charging VR.
