Some notes to add to the fray for anyone following MOSFET stuff.

Model / Output / Source Bike
FH001 / 35A / FJR 1300
FH008EB / 40A / BR 600 RR
FH010BA / 50A / ZX-10R
FH012AA / 50A / FJR 1300, R1
FH012BA / 50A / ZX-14R, ZR1400, GTR1400
FH014AA / 50A / CBR 1000 RR
FH016AA / 40A / ZX-6R

Our regular R/R is under or at 30amp anyways, so any of the MOSFET based R/Rs look to be an upgrade. I see no reason to shoot for a FH012AA, as the FH010BA (the one I used), and many others, are also 50A. I'd cross reference the bikes years, but that's the basic list.
So I see a lot of different options on Ebay for new R/R and I am curious of all the bikes in this list. Do any of them plug straight up or do they all require you to do some custom wiring? If they do require custom wiring how do you get the wiring to plug up to the different R/R?

If it's a true MOSFET r/r then you need a wiring harness. You can get them from roadstercycle.com

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?
The old R/R uses the brown wire (the source of basically all switched power on the bike) to get feedback on the system's voltage. The new R/R's use the main + wire for this rather than having a separate wire.

Just ignore the brown wire with a new R/R. It's carrying 12V when the ignition is switched on, so make sure it can't short out to anything else. Leave that pin unconnected if you're adapting the new R/R to the stock plug, cap off the bare wire if you're installing different connectors, or completely remove that fork of the brown wire if you're cleaning up your harness.

The ZX6R's FH016 may be a great option for the VN750.

Random internet image of FH016 kit


It has wire pigtails rather than the expensive Furukawa connectors, so you can cut off the weird Kawasaki plugs and put whatever connectors you want on it (this one has Metri-Pack connectors installed already).

Instead of just having the + and - wires (black/blue and black/white) in the second plug, it has a third wire (black) tied into one of the three stator wires. If you're completely bypassing the stator wires in the OEM harness, this provides an easy way to get the stator signal (yellow wire) to the junction box for the headlight turn-on.

Also, http://www.cycleterminal.com/ sells the Furukawa connectors and stock R/R connectors (along with a bunch of other electrical stuff). The prices are about the same, but the minimum order is lower than EB since he's not shipping from Japan.

$139 for the Regulator (Rectifier...??) and $144 for Ricks stator...lookin at $280 buckaroos.
