FINALLY! We have a non-OEM solution for the old reg/rec issue regarding heat-caused failures. Rick's Motorsports Electronics have built us a SE specific mosfet-based unit that does away with the sensitive (and high heat generating) diodes. I gave them the specs and they went right to work building what I believe is a great solution. (I've gone through two OEM units already) A few days ago I received it in the mail and bolted it onto the old beast. Installation was super simple as everything matched right up to the existing mounting point. Rick though it better to change the connection configuration a bit: Now, instead of using the white OEM connector to plug the reg/rec into the positive side of things, Rick's unit wires directly to the positive battery terminal -- 30 amp fuse is already wired into this changed configuration. So, it comes with the standard brown KTM plug for direct connection to the stator (them there three yellow wires), a battery terminal connector to negative, and one battery connector to positive (again, this one has the fuse built in). What do you do with the now-unused white positive connector (two red/white wires going into it)? I just covered the openings with electrical tape and tucked it out of the way. After yesterday's five hour trial run I can report that it's working great. Where: http://www.ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/index.php Part number:10-014H Cost: $150 (vs. about $135 for the OEM unit) NOTE: I have zero personal or business affiliations with this vendor (other than I gave him the specs and he built and sold me one) and have no financial stakes in his company. I'm only providing the above because it's about time someone made an alternative available to us. UPDATE: Well, it's now January of 2016 and I have a perfectly working regulator/rectifier. Someone recently contracted me to ask how the unit lasted, so I thought it'd be a good idea to share. In good fashion I've NOT babied my 950SE. It's been beat up well with lots of hot days in the desert, plenty of very deep water crossings, sand, mud (oh there was lots of mud), good vibrations and impacts caused by high speed on rock action, and dust dust dust. How many miles? Dunno, didn't write it down when I changed it. But many many weekend trips and a couple of long (over one week long) dirt rides. Very little on road riding, almost exclusively ridden off road.
