If it says made in Japan it is probably ok. It's the stuff made in third world countries, like mainland China, that you have to worry about. I would have gotten one from Ricks Motorsports. I don't see the benefit to a metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor R/R. I have 150,000 miles on stock Kawasaki ones, in their original location, without problems.
I definitely understand the spline problem and the acct problem, having had to deal with both those. But the old fashioned electrics on the Vulcan 750 have proven utterly reliable, I have never had a stator or R/R go bad. It's still a bad design, because the stator output is not controlled, but it works because the stator has such a low output.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
