Re series pass VR's, the one's to look for are switch mode MOSFET. Dont know of any built for the bikes but that is what is on my radar

Modern MOSFET switching transistors are 99% efficient so when turned on there is very little power loss & heat generated, couple that with a switching regulator IC as we do in laptops and most switch mode power supplies for computing and other electronics you get regulation without excessive heat. There are MOSFET's built for the auto industry capable of up to 200 amp switching & they are used in control systems for the cars & I suspect some car VR's but I have yet to see any manufacturer specify them in an auto component description.
Ha-ha...... No worries....
