Hello all,
I have purchased the SH775 regulator and waterproof fittings for a retrofit on my 2006 Caponord.
I removed the old regulator, and now see that the new regulator with the plugs built into the regulator,
is too large to fit into the original mounting position.
Anyone come up with a good mounting area for the larger regulator?

Thanks.

PS. I am also eliminating the brown connectors.

SH775 is a series regulator and not the normal shunt style.

Please explain the difference DeeFred! Is this an alternative to the Mosfet type?

Hi,
in Italian language there are some page on AOTR forum (http://www.apriliaontheroad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=308&t=38239&hilit=SH775) and this page http://www.belinassu.it/396108572.
Gooogle Translate in your friend :)

In few words for AOTR forum: Sh775 is good but not better than a Mosfet like FH010, 008, 016 , ecc.... The technology of SH775 is "fine" but it's need more caution against tension peaks.
For bellinassu web site SH775 is the best... But I am not so confident. He rides a BMW GS :lol:

Again: Sorry for my bad English

Bye

The Buell 1125 rotax has rec reg issues and series rec reg's are the go to .

The series regulator is popular for those bikes which are prone to cock the stator.

The newer mille and tuonos have this problem but the Capo doesnīt.

The series regulator cuts any over voltage instead of grounding it and this produces less heat in the stator.
If the series regulator is as reliable as the Mosfet shunt style I donīt know.

I drank the cool-aid and bought one a while back, it will have to mount on the Madstad - which is no problem, however it is a big sucker. It seems, and I may be completely wrong, it was originally a solution for the 500 watt r/r. I won't even bother mounting it until I run the switched lighting - and that is a project for the fall / winter.

alot of meat on the heat sync fins/body is un needed due to it not getting hot, trim it down to fit. I did, it fits fine.
I rode for an hour in hot sun used an IR temp reader on the unit through the panel vents and its temp was constantly low and cool to touch charging at 13.98 4k lights on to -14.28 lights in tick over.
