Found out a YAMAHA V MAX 1200. 1997 onwards and they have cooling fins will work and are a lot better than the xv. just have to make a simple mount point and run a earth wire to frame. RICKS brand in usa are about $200 Australia they are a good brand.

The driving lights will make the regulator run cooler when they are on.

What is your issue ? Are you looking for increased voltage ?

xv1100 regulator getting hot and volts not stable know problem with them and regulator failing. poor location of regulator not helping . yes extra lights will help regulator run cooler at higher engine rpm. sudden lose of rpm volts are all over the place and regulator gets very hot. from what have i read the v max 1997 onward run a lot cooler and volt are more stable

Shindengen FH020AA Mosfet Regulator/Rectifier, is what you need.

Do the 3 stator wires going to the regulator have a wiring order. all the wire diagrams i have seen show 3 stator wires same color. so i gather it does not matter in what wiring order they are in. Do these regulators need a heat sink plate behind them ?. thanks. john

Meh... It's the internet in the 2020's.

I would have been happy to help, but, not so much.

I'm kind of hoping his bike overheats and melts. Or not.

So one from usa plus post is about $250 AUD. So i better start saving . Thanks for the info on the mosfet regulator. from what i have read up on them they are very well build and the way they work is better than the old style regulator. Thanks. John
