Mosfet regulators

What's a good source for a mosfet reg/rect? I'm chasing down one from a 2007+ Honda CBR600RR which should be a direct swap (vs. the FH020 that roadstercycle sells.)

Bikebandit lists $250. This unit is used on a ton of bikes & I'm trying to see if there's a source that's less money.

I'll post up pics when I'm done with the swap.

Thanks, Jeff

roadstercycles.com should have what you're looking for.

No he doesn't, and I haven't seen the FH008 from any other aftermarket suppliers either. For OEM used on Ebay will be your best bet, that's where I got mine.

Unlike the FH012 or FH020 it will fit perfectly in the stock location, it's the same size and bolt pattern and doesn't have the bulky connectors on the side.

No clearancing of the fins will be needed with my Evo 2 kit bracket either!

Thanks Lukas!

It was your idea, in a roundabout way, that set me on this chase. Uller gave me the tip you'd told him. And this is exactly why I'm using that unit. I don't want to have the hassle of relocating. I am going to re-terminate it in weatherpak (sp?) connectors, though.

Cheers,
Jeff

Oops. I should have paid more attention to your post.

Hi Jeff,

This is exactly what I'm doing, just picked up some green, red and yellow wires during my lunch break. As you can see I cut off the stock Honda connectors, so I will extend the wires and run green and red directly to the battery, and the yellow ones to the stator. I have also cut off the piece of shit brown stock stator connector, obviously it's not suitable for a dirt bike and just a question of time until it causes problems! Mine had lots of dirt and corrosion inside it, will be replaced by a waterproof Weatherpack as well.

Lukas

Perfect, now you can be the guinea pig for this DOT approved hi/lo LED light that will drop right into your 7" race light! http://www.discountfleetsupply.com/tlc27270c.html

I have a 7" light on mine (with a flood lens) right now too and can't decide which route I want to take. Either replace the lens with a Cibie and the LED "bulb" or possibly even try out the Trucklite? Not a cheap experiment for me either way.

Fill it with a dielectric grease, silicone base, as thick as possible ... Corning Ware for example. It works ... so no need to replace shitty OEM connector ...

Wow. I wish I had known this before I bought the FH020. I have a new FH020 but need to figure out the mounting.

The one benefit of the FH020 is that the socket at the R/R is quite good and can be mated with the waterproof Furukawa QLW .250” Connector.

Question...I think this will be fine, but just wanted to air it out to make sure. I installed the Rally Raid Soft Pannier Rear Racks on my 2014 690, and also installed a Agri Supply Tube behind the right rack, to hold a 1L MSR fuel bottle.

Has anyone else done this? Seen any clearance issues with the swing arm at full compression? I haven't been able to compress the back end down to simulate, but it seems OK and consistent with the muffler on the left side. I figure those of you with RR rear tanks may also have a similar clearance.

Did you upgrade with aftermarket rear shock or did you mod the stock one?
Did you go with RR 300mm fork kit?
