990 Adv rectifier

Can anyone tell me of any online shop that can ship a rectifier to Hong Kong. I tried KTM parts direct, KTM twins, and no one ship to Hong Kong. I can get a used one on ebay, but new one is better. Not even my trusted KTM shop in Cape Town have stock

I suggest you avoid the OEM part.

or similar. I think cjdesign sells them as well.
The problem with OEM R/R or similar (ricksmotorsportelectric), is that when they go south, they start sending some high voltage shocks to the CDI, which can sometimes suffer burnout. I had this problem and fried both CDI and ABS. At least Shindengen, if it goes south, does not risk all the sensitive parts of the bike. Plus the lower operational temperature.

Plug and play. No issue whatsoever for a few years now.

Hi everybody, thank you for your replies. I can kick my own @ss for not waiting a few minutes before ordering the 2nd hand R/R from ebay. I received it today and my baby is as good as new, no ABS warning light anymore and speedo register correct speed and also ABS work 100% fine. Unfortunately I were in a hurry to get my bike fixed as I am Santa Claus at my wifes school and the kids cant wait for Santa to visit their school on Friday with his bike. I definitely want to buy a new R/R. What do you suggest, Ricks, or the SHINDENGEN from Japan. I hear what you say about the OEM part "gefr", thanks for the advice. OO, thanks for your post, I saved your webpage and I will definitely order from you in future. KTM in Hong Kong really suck, they never have stock. They installed a new front tire on my bike and 4000km later the sidewall started to crack, due to old stock.

I recently upgraded my regulator/ rectifier with Roadster Cycle's FH020AA kit

I went with Roadster Cycle setup over Ricks because it includes upgraded wiring. It's not plug and play like Ricks but, I think the upgraded wiring is worth the extra effort for a more robust setup.

Also, I believe the Shindengen regulator is made in China.

Have you looked at 'Eastern Beaver'?

He's in Japan. Looks like he knows what he's doing.

If you can't get an ADV regulator, the SE/SM or other regs will work also. The only difference is the length of the wires. The Adv is the shortest, the SE/SM is the longest.
