I bought my R/R from a bike breaker in Edmonton. It was actually for some kind of side by side that blew the motor or stolen with only about 30 hrs for about $20. All the part numbers matched up exactly. I mounted mine in a similar location to Bob just used adel clamps instead of steel tywrap. I think the problem with the stock regulator is how it deals with the excess voltage (converted to heat) running at max., best described in Bobs thread.
