950se voltage regulator

Recent the voltage regulator on my 950se started charging my battery at 17 v above idle. This caused my new battery to fail. Is buying a new voltage regulator and moving it to the side of the bike a good fix, or should I put on a regulator from an r1 like others have done? Thanks

Stock part = poor quality.

The stock voltage regulator is poor quality and it would be a mistake to install a new
stock part when for the same or less money you can install a superior part.

Buy a Shindengen MOSFET regulator and install it on the left side of the bike,
where it is not exposed to the excessive heat as in the OEM location which
is much too close to the exhaust header.

There are several vendors in the US who sell a kit which includes the genuine
Shindengen voltage regulator.

I have done business with the company below and can say they are a first class operation
and they give service which is above and beyond the norm. They provided me
with a kit which included virtually everything necessary to install a Shindengen
voltage regulator on my 950 Super Enduro, including color-matched heat shrink
tubing, high quality copper wire, connectors of the proper size, a circuit breaker, etc.
The only thing you will need to work out yourself is how to physically attach the voltage
regulator to the frame tubes of the bike. I used two heavy duty electrical wire ties
because they are easily found most anywhere and they are tough yet weigh next to
nothing and will not fail due to vibration or corrosion.

The company owner, Jack, is a test pilot for a company which manufactures helicopters.
I think that alone should tell you that you will be dealing with a person who knows
the importance of doing things right the first time. I cannot speak highly enough of
the quality of parts and service I received from this company. I wish all
vendors were as good as this one. I have no affiliation with the company nor did the
company provide me with any special deal. I am merely a very satisfied customer.

Thanks for the reply! I think I will get the basic kit from roadstercycle and then make a harness that will work with the stock connectors and fuse so that I have the to option to hook up either regulator if I am ever stranded.
