Rode my first seson, had no problems at all regarding stock reg/rec, BUT, after cheking charging voltage, it seems a bit low to me. In 5min of stearing in V-meter, reving throttle...only a second or two, were above 13V. Usual voltage between 12,5-12,8V.

as i understand, a new, mosfet reg/rec is a way forward. Now, i browse ebay, and there is a lot of regulators, calling thmeselves fh0222aa, ut prices are form 24 to allmost 200. Has anyone had some experience with purchase? Or is it best to buy one at Honda dealership?

Do yourself a favor and buy a good one. Original Shindengen or Tourmax is what You're looking for. There are many others that would fit nicely but these two are the most popular.
I myself bought not that long ago brand new FH008ED for a $100. It's not the cheapest one but it's not that much for the peace of mind.
FH012 and FH020 are also good.
Just keep in mind that not every one of these will fit in due to its size or different mounting holes.

A+ to skvrsk's post.

My OEM was ok-ish, I pulled it off and put a Rick's mosfet on - it lasted just past warranty. Put a non-mosfet ricks on - it was always weak. I used my OEM r/r as a bit of a loaner spare and when I put it back on just as a test - right before the Roadster CE 605 it was DOA.

I thought I might has a stator issue - but my stator tests and wiring tests always came back in spec. Put the CE605 on and the thing is great. Jack is a pro at these.

The CE605 has been replaced with smaller units - however for USA guys Jack is a great resource. He has a day job - so sometime the emails come back in the evening. Whatever you buy - make sure it's a high quality unit.

Thanks for the answers. First, i am from Slovenia, EU, so USA purchases might have high mailing cost and be submitted to customs.
I would like to buy once and for long, no doubt about it. But this is what i am affraid of.

And i would like to bolt it on, with little or no modification to brackets. As i saw on few youtube vids, fh008 is direct fit. And now i must pay attention to get original shindengen. Today i contacted a trustworthy seller of automotive electric parts, and they said, fh008 are listed as Suzuki spare part. If am I shure it will work on caponord?

moto abruzzo website had step-by-step tutorial, but seems defunct now.

FH008ED is originally from a Honda CBR 600 I think - Direct fit to existing place with no modification to the mounting point. You will have to change the connectors though, or cut them out and join the wires.
