I'll splice them all together. awesome.

For the KTM adventure it seems to me that the stock R/R goes through a fuse box [for the ignition?, lower right side, 30a]. Does this mean I can by pass the in line fuse on the new mosfet R/R since I am splicing it into the 2 red wires that plug in to this KTM adventure's fuse box already?

I am going to instal the Taiwanese R/R that I got from Rick's Motorsports in NH. They list it as 10-013H Hot Shot KTM Rectifier-Regulator. I bought it last spring, didn't really need it till now. The wires are silver. Has anyone had problems yet with this R/R?

Thanks for all the advice on this thread.
Your quite welcome..... If there are silver wires, that usually mean aluminum, which is bad. They do not hold up to vibration well, and if your bike vibes as much as mine....., then I would expect that the aluminum will not hold up. I am surprised to see any offering with aluminum. Only place aluminum wires are accepted is from the box on your street to your house. Ask for the country of origin, If is Chinese .... I would shop elsewhere.... Just my two cents. Which ever unit you get, it should carry the same hook up as the stock....IE... 3 wires from your stator..... and one to either ground, or battery negative.... The other to where the stock positive went..... Either fuse box, or battery...
