I was thinking about getting this R/R http://www.ebay.ca/itm/380473041443?...84.m1423.l2649

Would this have all the connections I need, and is it a bit overkill?

Also what are people's opinion on fusing the three wires coming from the stator? Is there a consensus or are people still of differing opinions?

That's the same kit I'm putting on, but from a different seller. This is the same one from Roadstercycle, he's a good person to work with if there's any problem, very helpful. Looks like the shipping has gone up, but I think you might get a better price at his website:

I don't think it's overkill, you get plenty of battery wire, fuse for charge circuit, and just enough fittings. I had to round up some larger gauge stator wires.

The MOSFET is supposed to handle and bleed off the extra current better, without getting as hot.

The consensus I saw on stator fuses was that it wasn't really worth it. I'd still want a voltmeter to let me know I might have blown a fuse.

I found some small, cheap, digital ac voltmeters and thought about three of those to watch the stator voltage. Maybe hide them behind side cover or under the seat. I pretty much forgot about it though.

there is a brown wire in the output of the regulator. Do you connect it back with a new regulator?

I don't like to do this, but I would like to bump this question. I have the exact same question. If using the stock wiring harness, what does the brown wire on the original R/R do? Can you you just skip it and if so why?

Thanks

Well, according to this link, it goes to a junction point where it branches to junction box and ignition switch.

I only understand what I don't understand.

Can anyone verify which pin the yellow stator wire jumpers to at the Junction Box?

Looks like it belongs, as it's plugged into the JB, on the lower plug, back row, second hole from the bottom?

I disconnected this one over a month ago and I have two empty pins on the lower plug. Besides trying the headlight bypass and now forgetting which mode I left it in.

If you did the head light bypass then you don't need to figure out where the yellow write from the stator goes. The yellow write only triggers the headlight relay inside the jb.

The brown wire senses the load so that the stock rr can correctly regulate the voltage. The mosfet regulator doesn't need this function.

Just not sure which mode I left the bypass in. If the headlight works when I get it together, I'll do away with the yellow jumper so I get the voltage benefit. If not, I'll do the bypass again. Guess I coulda thought of that earlier huh.
