    You may already know this source, but here is link to what has been recommended to me from another board member.

    I believe I'm running an FHA020. Bought it used off eBay. Bought the harness from Jack, and he helped with a couple of questions I had.

    Thanks for the info. Anybody ever tried the twinmotorcycle VR? http://https://www.twinmotorcycles.nl/webshop/artikel.asp?mc=1&aid=23244&cid=0&s=voltage%20regul ator&a=
    Seems pretty complete, not sure of the exchange rate, shipping charges, etc....
    Also notice that many VR's have 5 wires, where as the 2009 single phase has only 4. Does one of the stator wires out of the VR get sealed off or tied to one of the other stator leads?

    I purchased that from Twins back in August and it was $169 shipped to the US.
    It didnít come with that VR that is pictured but with one like this: https://www.denniskirk.com/v-factor/...rd/2012538.sku


    A crafty person could make make there own mount and lengthen the wires on the DennisKirk one. They have the same plugs as your old one.

    Thank You DamMechanic. VR at the link is sold out as well as many others. Probably going to buy the Roadstercycle DIY kit, at least I know what brand and model it is. Thanks again.

    Just purchased the DIY Kit from Roadster cycle with the FH020AA R/R. Since it is recommended to have it directly connected to the battery, has anybody relocated one? possibly inside the airbox?
    The template shows it to be 3.5 X 4.124(~.5 for connectors) X 1.25. Possibly fit where the IEV Actuator is located?

    TBone, I just made an adapter plate so the new one would mount to the old location. It works fine, and gets all sorts of cooling air.

    Thanks TheWood, very cool. Wonder what happens if you bottom out, especially a Uly? He says in the video the mounting bolts go through metal, does the shell need to be grounded? I asked Jack that question.

    Thanks Pushr0d. Roadstercycles recommends using all new wires to the battery with a fuse, so thinking about relocating as well.
