Good rectifier?

Seems to be a SHINDENGEN?

Yeah - it's a Chinese reg/rect - I bought one for my bike - unfortunately I haven't used it yet so I can't say if it's any good - but after checking out a few bike forums most people seem to be getting good results from them - I'm gonna wire in a volt meter as well so I will be able to see how it is performing and hopefully get a heads up before my battery runs down if it does crap out.

You can do a test on it with a multimeter to check it's working properly before you fit it - the info is on youtube.

There is a good selection on Amazon:

I thought the SHINDENGEN was the original part? Is the original what I should get?

Yeah - sorry - my mistake - Shindengen is the Japanese original part - so if it is as described it should be fine.

Some people upgrade their reg/rect from the stock item - e.g. MOFSET

I have never had a regulator failure, but mine is one of the finned “SH” Shindengen ones like the OP pictured.

Due to a weird issue with my CDI (spark unit), I have decided to upgrade to the mosfet “FH” Shindengen regulator/rectifier as discussed here way back when.

I ordered an eBay part from a 2005 Kawasaki ZX10. It has the same 5 connections, but will just need a new mounting hole it seems as it’s slightly wider.

Example: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Kawasaki-ZX10R-2004-2005-C1H-regulator-rectifier/143356963867?epid=16027015357&hash=item2160bdac1b:g:GEUAAOSwglJdVYUq

Thanks Steve, I knew I read how you did the MOSFET reg/rec upgrade in your fun in the shed thread! Your work and advice are always top notch!

Thank you!
:clap

I did the same, a while after Steve paved the way.
