Hi, '03. Need to replace R/R. Been reading old posts(years back) about Mosfet being the way to go, but hardly any listings for Mosfet regulators. Are they still the way to go? Who has them? Seeing lots of listings under $25. Cheap junk? What is the 2020 info on what brand to buy and where to buy it.

Thanks.

Roadstercycle still has the MOSFET kit, but the price has gone up. Around $125 or so.

I'd be wary of a $25 MOSFET.

Sorry, my post was not worded well. $25 listings don't say mosfet so I guess they are "regular". Is $25 the going rate for a regular? If the mosfet are so scarce, I will probably get a regular one but would like to know who has a good name brand unit. thanks.

Instinct tells me $25 is junk period. The OEM is close to $200 I believe. So I’d think a good replacement would still be more than $25

Some members here have used cheaper RRs and they worked, but I don't think there's any long term reports. It all could just die on them and we never see them again.

The charging system is already behind the 8-ball on this bike. Electrical mods can help.

I second the mosfet unit from roadstercycle. I tried the cheap r/rs and they're junk. I'm so happy with the mosfet unit that I'm planning to buy one for another bike when its r/r fails

FH020AA on roadstercycle. I'm typically as cheap as they come but I wouldn't try to shop deals here because there are a lot of fakes out there. Also Jack does costumer service right

Yep, Jack extended my warranty because it was going to be six months before installing.

The kit couldn't be easier.

Think he stopped using eBay and is using his website exclusively.
