Rectifiers usually do not have a voltage component, they have a range of voltages and a maximum current it can handle. You would be better to use a new silicon rectifier if you want to ride the bike. Frankly the original ones were not great at their best.

Thanks Nigel,
Im not so familiar with the electrical components. For a new Silicone rectifier, what would I look for? would it work with my bike regardless of it being a 6V or 12V?

You could just Google "single phase silicon bridge rectifier" or go to any electronics supply place and pick up one, should not be more than between $10 to $20. You want one that is in a metal case with a mounting hole in the center, has 4 terminals, 2 for AC (input), 1 + and 1 - for output...
