Triumph Street Triple R Rectifier/Regulator

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by hansrd_98, Apr 25, 2011.

  1. My Street Triple R's regulator unit seems to have gone dead.

    From what I hear, the Triumph R/R upgrade kit costs around $600 fitted in Australia. I'm looking for cheaper alternatives online..Has anyone fitted this unit as a replacement for the factory one?

  2. I have used the regulatorrectifier.com units on other bikes and never had a problem. They are generally better designs, more cooling fins, heavier load capacity etc. The mounting holes don't always line up exactly because they use the same unit for multiple different models but that's a small issue.

  3. Most designed for bikes will have similaramperage, so, so long as th enumber of wires match, it should be fine.

  5. Have you checked your stator? If your R/R failed it may have fried the stator too. Have a look here for all the info you'll ever need on this issue:

    My stator failed on friday, but the regulator appears to be ok. I got a replacement in any case - a mosfet unit as recommended - FH008 from the wreckers here in Melbourne off a 07 CBR600RR - $150. The stator is on order from the UK, hopefully won't take too long to get here.

    Also, for 675 owners I recommended getting an aflasher unit:

    One of it's functions is to warn you when the alternator is no longer working. I had plenty of warning that the bike was running on battery.
