    Hi Andy.

    Thanks but it wasnt the regulator in the end. It was the capicitor. It gave some funny running issues. I didnt think it would be that as it tested fine on the bench. Just goes to show, change it any way.

    Thought you guys might be inerested:

    I didnt change the capacitor as it’s hard to get good ones these days

    Went for this and it runs…[Read more]

    Hi chaps. Was having trouble with regulator I thought.

    turned out to be condensor. I would set off and bike ran fine and after a wile it would start miss firing. Thought at first it was coils when they got hot, an old common problem on lots of jap bikes. I had changed condenser twice with new so never suspected. And strangely the condensor tested…[Read more]

    Hi all.

Thought of coil, regulator. Wiring fault. The condensor bench tested fine and everyone  said these never go and mine was quite new. Anyway it had gone and this was my…[Read more]

  • Hi Andy. Went to m&p and they sent wrong one.

    looks like that one would do but do you have any lettering or markings on it. They said they need something to go on.

    they said the one they sent me is what they have to fit mine. It’s 1 phase so no good.

    Thanks.

  • Hi. Need some help with my replacement regulator rectifier. Need a new one and all on eBay are 1 phase.

    mine has the seven wires but no markings to order another. Went to m&p and they sent me single phase which is no good. They can help but asked if I can get some numbers off another.

    Anyone have the upgrade with seven wires with any model…[Read more]
