The link to order is:

The F4112 is the fixed rate regulator, the F4118 is the stepped rate regulator

Also, to install a 33,000 uf, 35 volt, 105 C capacitor. The RV-12 has a 22,000 one. Doesn’t hurt to add additional....I think SH has done more homework on this issue.

I hate to stir the pot again but I found what looks like a direct replacement for Ducati VR. For the guys that are going through these things like popcorn and want to stay with Ducati form factor this might be economical answer - $43.93 on eBay incl shipping. You’d have to compare part numbers and check specs but it looks like the real McCoy.

I installed a John Deere AM101406 at 100TT when my Ducati took a dump. No problems at all and now at 450TT.

I got one of those $43.93 rectifier regulators. Visually it’s the same and the connector is the same. Plan to carry it along in case it’s needed to get home with. Don’t know the load it can carry.

Has anyone installed the $43.93 Ebay regulator to confirm it is the same and works? Lockwood’s replacement is $147.57.
