Looks like a great article. Of course, being mechanically/electrically-challenged, I understand very little of it.

I do know that when my RR fried I got a replacement with BIG FINS!

it is the same one chiron and i settled on in the thinking of trying the ce602 thread
the fho12aa is available as a kit with connectors from www.roadstercycle.com
we are going with the universal kit and wiring to the battery with an inline fuse. the kit is about 120+ shipping

All I know is I wish you guys had found this R/R before i went back stock a little over a month ago.This looks very promising

i havent ordered mine yet i am still waiting on the rest of the parts and i am building a custom battery box to hold to hold an exide sc30lfa 400cca and a set of accel super coils
pn140403 i hope it will handle the amperage it says it will. if so heat shouldnt be a problem.
it should barely break a sweat

Our regulators are SCR (Silicone Controlled Rectifier) the latest and greatest are MOSFET (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor)

Basicaly it's like going from Analalog to Digital, Mosfet has been around for atleast 30 years but has only been used on M/C's for about 10.

The CE602 uses the same Series design as the SH775AA. The MOSFET Shunt design is used in the the Shindengen FH008, FH009, FH010, FH011, FH012 and the FH014 but the FH011 was designed for maximum cooling. It has the mother of ALL heatsinks, I just purchased 2 FH012's and 1 FH011 R/R's and waterproof connectors from Ebay.

Rkcdude will get the first upgrade to the FH011, pics and write up will soon follow. I also purchased an infrared gun type thermometor to test the changes in temperature.

thats how we do it where i am from but i cannot take credit hizzo3 built the first oversize battery box on here to hold a westco 12v30 350cca the one i am using is the exide cross reference for the yix30 found in harley touring bikes even though the exide is rated 400cca it tests at 445cca we are an exide dealer so i get a break on the price.

Lance, the CE602 doesn't use the same design as the FH012. They both use MOSFETS, but the CE602 is a series style and the FH012 is a shunt style like the OEM. That's why there was so much discussion over the R/R choice on the other thread.

Speaking of batteries y'all, anyone know what the highest capacity (amp hours) battery is that fits in our box? I'm not so worried about cca's.
