Maybe if we could get an order for 10 we could get a better deal on shipping. Can they email you a picture to make sure it's the right one?

It looks to be identical to the one you have.

Default Confusion on part numbers.

Poking around somewhere on the web, it looks like the replacement for the Ducati 343620 is the SK F4118--the F4112 now having leads instead of the desired spade terminals. It also appears that they recommend a larger cap, SK F4114. John, did you switch out the cap in your installation?

On my installation there were no changes to the cap. The Ducati cap plugged right into the SH.

I'm referring to the capacitor/condensor used to smooth things out--SH recommended a larger value with higher voltage max than Rotax specified.

I didn't add a larger Capacitor, just went with the factory setup.

They do ship another (different) Silent Hektik part all over the world according to their site. Possibly they could obtain the F4112 and ship to US?
The same blokes across the pond are now selling these on eBay--F4118 is now the correct part number for the Ducati-compatible units:

I had an e-mail from Jerome Martin - Martec with the request if I can buy the regulators on this side of the ocean (I'm living in the Netherlands ;-)).
I mailed Silent Hektik with a request for a quotation for an initial order for 10 regulators (F4118). In that case the price will be $174,- including shipping to the Netherlands.
My wife and I are working for an airliner so one of us can take them to the USA when we have a flight to the States and drop them off at FedEx or DHL. The only thing is I'm not familiar with customs in the States, normally I take stuff only back home.

Gagarin737 (Joeri),

I received my SH regulator from you today. I just wanted to thank you for making the purchase possible at a reasonable price. It's great that you and your wife took time out of your busy lives to help us out with the batch purchase and related shipping logistics.

If you ever need anything from us, please let us know.

Thanks again,
Alex

I second that, and I hope your wife enjoyed her lunch! Looking forward to getting mine installed. I'll also be installing a good sized electrolytic filter capacitor, which for some reason was not part of the original installation on the RV-12.
