Don't want to shove this excellent thread off topic so I think I'll post up a sep[arate one for that question.
Really appreciate your effort, really intersting even more important enlightening.
Give me a day to see if I can find one of the many excellent regulator/rectifier manufactures willing to put on an oe direct replacement plug.
I'd also like to talk to a few engineers about series rather then shunt regulators, as that is one possible way to deal with rapid stator heat aging.
This isn't likely critical yet. Lost Rider, the owner of the Shorai I found to be so unbalanced has been the first to experience many F800GS problems. It will take time and a lot of cycling before these issues show up for others.
Lastly I think it wise to wait for some more data points on what charging voltages are being seen on K7X bikes, as NCD's post has given me pause.
