I just disected an original Kaw part (Shindengen) as it failed on my 93.
I was shocked at what was inside as far as workmanship, absolutely terrible. I am surprised that it lasted this long.
Interesting circuit, kind of like three dimmer circuits in parallel. They short half of the rectifiers with the thrysitors for periods of time to lower the dc output. Could have done it differently, but it works, justs generates A LOT of heat in the process.
I ordered a new r/r from Rick's in NH. They say they make thier own and are much better quality than the original (that won't be hard to do).
$ 105 delivered, a bit more than the other guys, but hopefully worth it.
