950 SE Regulator/Rectifier SOLUTION

FINALLY! We have a non-OEM solution for the old reg/rec issue regarding heat-caused failures.

Rick's Motorsports Electronics have built us a SE specific mosfet-based unit that does away with the sensitive (and high heat generating) diodes.

I gave them the specs and they went right to work building what I believe is a great solution. (I've gone through two OEM units already) A few days ago I received it in the mail and bolted it onto the old beast. Installation was super simple as everything matched right up to the existing mounting point.

Rick though it better to change the connection configuration a bit: Now, instead of using the white OEM connector to plug the reg/rec into the positive side of things, Rick's unit wires directly to the positive battery terminal -- 30 amp fuse is already wired into this changed configuration.
So, it comes with the standard brown KTM plug for direct connection to the stator (them there three yellow wires), a battery terminal connector to negative, and one battery connector to positive (again, this one has the fuse built in).

What do you do with the now-unused white positive connector (two red/white wires going into it)? I just covered the openings with electrical tape and tucked it out of the way.

After yesterday's five hour trial run I can report that it's working great.


Where: http://www.ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/index.php
Part number:10-014H
Cost: $150 (vs. about $135 for the OEM unit)

NOTE: I have zero personal or business affiliations with this vendor (other than I gave him the specs and he built and sold me one) and have no financial stakes in his company. I'm only providing the above because it's about time someone made an alternative available to us.

Very cool!

I am hoping my single de-cat can is enough to help with the temp, but if not, this seems like the perfect upgrade. I monitor mine using an Advmonster voltage guage, so I can keep track.

I have had one for over a month now and it works great. Plug and play installation.
My voltage went from 14.1 to 14.7v at idle after the swap.

Good guy, good company.

Ricks is an awesome business, they cured a few hi output Electrosport KTM stator/regulator issues that Electrosport couldn't/wouldn't fix. A+++ vendor.

You got one from them for a SE or Adventure? But then again, they are probably the same except for wire lengths.

Question

Whats the difference in RICK's SE & ADV reg rect ?
is it just wire lengths ? if so then ADSV be better to get it located further up front ?

Works great on the 950sm and smr as well. I've been running a Ricks VR since last year on my SMR. Replaced two stock VR's, wasn't going to try a 3rd. Thanks for having these built. Mounted mine on the LH side of the airbox to keep it away from the exhaust heat.

Update

Just a quick note to let y'all know that my Rick's regulator/rectifier is still running strong in the hot deserts of the southwest after about 15 months.

My R/R started playing up at 25,000km.
I relocated it on the nitrogen tank of the rear suspension, so it can be exposed to cool and clean airflow.
Stopped playing up.
Airbox relocation does not tick the box 'cool airflow'.

You probably are but keep that battery on trickle charge if you can whilst you wait, last thing you want is that dying in the mean time

Other than that hows the trip so far?

So far so good.

Had 2 massive setbacks, but it's going allright.

I was lucky I was on top of a mountain range and had the luxury of coasting down hill 40kms with the bike deader than a doornail....

Then found a bloke with a truck and now just waiting. I even procured a solar panel to help keep the battery charged, but that's not working so well

Part should be here by friday hopefully, so will have to see how it goes from there.

Happy to hear Rick's is being cool to you. Sucks it had to happen in a remote place like that. My last OEM unit died in Utah's desert near Lake Powell -- of course I was all alone. Swore to myself I was never going to let that happen to me again.
