Electrum - i bought the one $75 RMR260
Lance - ???i can't believe that...
i am glad you confirmed it though
That's why I will not buy a cheap Chineese R/R, RM Stator, Electrosport and others buy them in bulk for under $10.00 and sell them between 700% and 1200% markup.
A few years ago a company called Electrex was selling these Chineese stators and r/r's and they were failing as fast as they could replace them, they got such a bad reputation they had to change their name. You may have guessed by now the new name. Electrosport which is owned by RM Stator.
RM Stator is a Canadian based company that imports Chineese made parts and uses Electrosport as their main U.S. distributor. You can buy directly from RM stator but it is still Chineese made crap.
Your better off buying a new Kaw part or buy a used R/R off a vn1500, the vn1500 did not have the R/R issue since the R/R was placed on the side of the bike where it could be cooled.
Shindengen is the main Japaneese supplier of R/R's for Honda, Kawasaki, suzuki and Yamaha. The failure of our R/R's is not the part itself but the placement of the part.
Shindengen made three R/R's for the vn700/750: Sh555-12 85'-93' then was superceeded by the sh658-12 85'-03 which was superceeded by the sh650a-12 85'-06'. ALL three R/R's will work on ALL years but the sh650a-12 was the newest model and is the only one you can buy from Kawasaki.
The same three models were made for Yamaha with the same model number but in a 5 pin version.
Below is an example:
Kawasaki SH658-12 6 pin R/R
Yamaha SH658-12 5 pin R/R
