R1 Regulator/Rectifier swap to solve the problem

So my updated Honda Reg/Rec (the newer one with the fins) burnt out two monthes ago leaving me stranded. So I bought an RMStator reg/rec and yesterday it left me stranded 20 miles from home Wonderful, I've had enough with Honda rectifier problems so I just bought a new Yamaha R1 (98-01 style) Reg/Rec because as much as I hate to say it, Yamaha just makes a better rectifier lol I also bought the pigtail repair kit for it which includes a plug with all wires for 10 bucks! and it'll allow me to splice it right in, one ground, one hot, and 3 stator wires, my question is has anyone tried this swap before? did it solve the Honda woes?

Re: R1 Regulator/Rectifier swap to solve the problem

Lots of people have switched to a MOSFET r/r with good results.

Some good info here: http://tinyurl.com/ctrpgum

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: R1 Regulator/Rectifier swap to solve the problem

Just went thru this myself. Two stator 3 rectifiers and bout 5-6 batteries. mmmm Mmm mmmmmm my honda loves. Electrical parts...

But..... I did buy 18awg 200 celcius rated wire polyimidie? coated... the stator was 33 wraps on each pole. I rep wrapped it with 28 wraps each poles still get 12.4ish at idle and no higher then 14.30ish when high revs.
I also bought that 130.00 mosfet shindengen regulator rectifier.
don't think I needed it after I wrapped my stator but everyone says its way to go..

My stator when hot would create more power for whatever reason and melt my regulators got stranded twice then read the editorial here on rewinding stator it was very helpful. Ill post update there after few thousand miles but all is great so far

Btw I thought bout buying R1 rectifier or heard gsxr1000 had good one also? But never saw forsure they were working so I bit the bullet And forked over the 130$ for damn mosfet

You most definitely can use an r1 rectifier, the Honda blackbird guys do it all the time, I'm just wondering how long it'll last on Hondas all time best rectifier eating machine lol all you need is the 5 wire pigtail and splice it in place 3 yellow power, 1 ground, 1 DC power

You use the 98-01 R1 rectifier and the pigtail of wires for it, they sell a 9 dollar wire kit for it on ebay and a rectifier is like 35 man

If your bike is carbbed, 93-97, than there will be 5 wires, 3 yellows which are all interchangeable, order doesn't matter, a green which is your ground, and a red which is your DC power out. the yellows are incoming power, than It gets converted and there is one 12v line of DC power coming out to the rest of the bike (red wire) hope that helps.

Re: R1 Regulator/Rectifier swap to solve the problem

UPDATE!: So I've had the 98-01 R1 style rectifier on for about 2500 miles and it just finally burnt out Its crappy, but its done a lot better than the Honda rectifiers (time bombs) that I was using, so I guess 30 bucks for an ebay rectifier every 2500 miles or so is alright I'm a daily rider, some people only do that in a season so its probably fine, im just going to carry a spare.

Your bike is EFI (refer to my other post) you'll need a newer R1 style rectifier, the 98-01 style is a 3 hot wire, 1 power out, 1 ground style for carbed bikes, things with EFI will use a newer rectifier and you'll have to get a cheap wiring pigtail or use spade lug connectors. most any rectifier can be made to fit through wiring.
