    I just bought a Mosfet Regulator from Electrex World £120 for my 2001 Fi1 . This one bypasses the wiring loom and goes straight to the battery . I fitted on the 9th of August and have done about 2000 miles as a courier since . I've had the headlight on all the time and it has never failed to start even with the fan going . It comes with a thick piece of aluminium heat sink which looks like good quality . They also have 3 different lengths of cable if you want to relocate the regulator in a cooler place .

    I bought this to see if it is a long term solution to regulator failure and those of us who don't have the wiring skills to go the cheaper route of sourcing parts from other bikes can choose this option. I keep you informed while I courier this bike with 1000 miles a week.

    I have converted to Mosfet on my VTEC along with modified wring back to the batter. I also cut the plugs off the generator and regulator wires and soldered them together.

    Interesting to see how it survives long-term. I wasn't a big fan of their shunt type reg/recs. I had one that failed shortly outside the warranty period on my RC24 (which was a replacement for the OE one that failed). They gave me a modest discount on a replacement, but I only really felt comfortable once I'd replaced it with a Shindengen MOSFET jobbie.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this one too. Just fitted one to my 99 fix.

    I fitted a R1 Mosfet to mine and its covered a further 80k with this fitted and no issues. Infact the original stator lasted 115,000 miles before burning out.
