    What good is 2 shitty units? Please just trust me (and everyone else) on this.

    The Roadstercycle website is kind of a shit show (imo). READ FIRST and ask questions.

    Like Captain, I am dubious of cheap (Chinese) R/R's. Buy a quality unit but my preference based on my own research is a "Mosfet" type.
    They have added benifit in the way they operate that provides less long term detriment to the system, heat dissapation is better and heat is the enemy of electrics. You will pay more but my experience would have me do it again tomorrow if another of my bikes needed a new R/R.
    I bought one of those cheap (AU$28) and no sooner ordered than I found information from more knowlwegable people than myself explaining why I should think again. I think I paid about $300 for the right R/R but performance has been faultless since. I guess you pays your money and makes your choices :)
    The Chinese junk I bought still sits in its original packaging, a lesson learned for me. I tried to sell it locally - no takers - perhaps they are too wise?

    I got these on both of my gen3 bikes, no issues its been years since I installed them. I had oem honda ones in the past an was not impressed. His stuff is aces, and if your lucky to talk to him, he is an engineer who flies helicopters.

    Hi Ken. Save yourself valuable time and heartache and go for the Roadstercycle setup. Trust me you will be glad you did and it will be money well spent. I did mine two years ago and haven't had a problem since.

    I finally got my new FH020AA Mosfet rectifier !
    It is way bigger than the older style!!
    Mainly what I am wondering is with the three phase stator wires is there any specific orientation that they must fallow?
    Do I just hook up any of the three yellow wires to any of the three terminals??

    Yes, polarity does not matter. It does on the power and ground though.
