where should i get a R/R?

I just replaced my stator since the original one burned up and had open legs. I want to replace my R/R as well. i heard that it could of contributed to the stator failing. Where can i get one and what kind? Im sure a KAW part will cost me both arms and legs. I dont do ebay. I heard a mosfet one is the way to go.

I just rec'd my mosfett last week after re-doing my stator also. I installed it over the weekend and the readings showed 14v+ almost immediately at idle. I rec'd everything in the kit setup that his website showed. Between the website and instructions it was pretty easy. I did have to lengthen my 3 yellow stator wires because I have my R/R relocated but that only took and extra 10 mins. FYI for ya if you go this route. The other 3 wires from the stock R/R plug get taped up and tucked away.

Got a MOSFET a few months back. Well worth the money. Get the kit, has all the connectors you need.

I am with all these guys this could be the single most important upgrade yet for the VN70's trouble plagued charging system,and should result in lower heat in the stator which= longer life and more reliability.

r/r hook up question

Ok im looking at the mosfet R/R and it has 2 connectors, one is for the stator wires, simple. The other connector also has two wires one for the + term for the batt and one for the - term. I understand that these two wires will come in the kit and i dont use the bikes original wires. BUT what do i do with the brown wire that goes to my loads ie lights, horn etc..
