My First Post here, Hi All Folks !!
Finally did my rectifier mod. This time not with an Goldwing rectifier but I
used an Honda CBR 600/1000RR Mosfet rectifier (MY 2007- and on)
bought it from a breaker on Ebay. Price 60 + 15 shipping (may 2010)
Now (2012) the prices are risen, breakers do know the demand
Same manufacturer as the original and 90% of most bikes: Shindengen model FH008 , ( 35 A ) FHxxxx stands for Mosfet.
Instead of SHxxxx old technology, which dispose a lot heat.
Size of it is exact the same as the original and it fits perfect. Looks are far better than the old one.
connectors are from (GM) Delphi metri-pack 280 (waterproof) and rated at max. 30A. (note wrapped one side with tape to prevent it from scratching my frame.)
Left the white connector unused < In my case cutted it and shrinktubed (glue) it.
additional Auxiliary can be connected here, as its a switched wire.
original rectifier , 13.6 Volt @ idle
Mosfet rectifier, 14,33 @ idle = original (thin) wiring harness.
14.45 @ idle = Eastern Beavern/ Metripack connectors wiring direct to the Battery
With headlights on @ idle:
voltage at 4000rpm.
Wired the FH008 directly to the battery with thicker AWG 12 / 2,05mm/ 3,31mm2 wires & metripack 630/280 connectors .
idle with headlights off:

Heat problem? :
the original you would burn your fingers by touching it.
this one, Does even build HEAT, nice warm but burning.... now way
