What are the part numbers for the MOSFET regulators? I know they are just off another bike, and nothing special or rare, but I am just not 100% sure what bike they are from, and what years.

its the Shindegen FH020AA MOSFET Universal Rectifier/Regulator. unfortunately Shindegen has stopped shipping these to the US. I have not found a new source for a MOSFET R/R, but any 3 phase MOSFET R/R will work. so even an R/R used for a Harley Davidson would work, as long as the stator is three phase, and uses a permanent magnet.

I've been reading Shindegen had a factory affected by the tsunami so that is why we are not seeing them right now.

The newish-to-me stock one is doing fine, over 13v @ idle, and 14.5 @ 3.5k. I just worry that it stresses the stator more than a MOSFET would. I don't want to have to have Tim rewind one of his own stators because of an inefficient regulator.

what brand of R/R did you get?

55402 looks to be an even better upgrade than the F012AA R/R

Quote:
The Compu-Fire voltage regulators have series type circuitry which allows both the stator and regulator to operate at a lower temperature by controlling the stator output. When the battery reaches full charge, the stator output is switched off by the regulator. The output voltage of the regulator is calibrated to meet the charging requirements of modern maintenance free batteries.

ZX-6R 2007-> Cut-n-splice... Either solder, or get both connectors from eastern beaver...
ZX-10 2004->
ZX14 2006->
Concours 2008-> Both MOSFET and non-MOSFET available, beware! (And the tyristor based one seems to need a larger load than the VTR to work)

Yamaha
FZ1 2007->
YZF-R1 2007->
YZF-R1 2004-2006 - Works, but has large fins, making it hard to fit...

Honda
CBR 1000RR 2004-2007 - Both MOSFET and non-MOSFET available, BEWARE! Cut-n-splice
CBR 1000RR 2008-> Odd connectors, no plugs available, use spade connectors...
CBR 600RR 2003-2006 - Both MOSFET and non-MOSFET available, BEWARE! Cut-n-splice
CBR 600RR 2007-> Cut-n-splice


R/R wiring kits and new r/r connectors (Beaver Power Wiring kits scroll down to the bottom for leads to plug into the stock wiring harness)

I can't seam to find any more MOSFET R/Rs If any one else finds some not on the list, feel free to post it.

My current regulator is a SH650A off of a mid-90s Ninja 600.

I did, however, just locate a MOSFET R/R off a 2007 ZX-14 this morning that I just got for $40, shipped. Now I guess I just need a wiring kit for it so I can splice it into my wiring.



Edit: I just paid $46.45 for a complete wiring set from roadstercycles, which was more than the R/R. Complete cost is somewhere around $87 total - good deal.
