Is this an OE r/r?

Dumb question but does this look factory? It does to me but I was under the impression the factory VTR R/Rs didn't have cooling fins?

I guess there is no way to tell if it's upgraded or not without looking at the back but at least I would know if it was the one the bike was born with. This is a '98 SuperHawk

Thanks


PS: This probably needs to be moved to the correct forum. I screwed up

'98-'00 did not come with a finned R/R. Someone will correct me if I am wrong, but '01-'05 got a finned version, but it was not a MOSFET R/R.

Grab a 10mm socket, pull it off the subframe and look at the back. Two bolts and you will have your answer.

Not OEm for that year bike, may not be an OEM one at all, and it's diad in any case so worthy of replacement with a MOSFET

That is from a later model OEM, still diode based, still crappy

Don't think so as the fins on OEM 01-05 model run the other way - across rather than lengthways. Unknown aftermarket and as you say still diode based.

Best option is search for FH020AA on eBay.

I just looked back through my old pictures and saw the '01-'05 R/R is how Wicky describes.

Well , I suppose the BEST option would be the new SHINDENGEN SH847 Series R/R with upgraded wiring. From a DL1000 2015 or newer
RECTIFIER ASSY 32800-31J00


If you're looking for a cheaper solution that has shown to work well, then yes I agree, a good used old style shunt SHINDENGEN FH020AA and good wiring is a MUCH better solution than any of the diode R/R

E.Marquez: isnīt SH775 good option as well? Should be series like SH847, but not so robust. I will replace R/R soon and consider FH020 or SH775.


I donīt undestand electric, just know that FH020 will work, but if there can be little upgrade with SH775 for the same price, why not ...

Yes the 35 Amp SH775 is a great option as well.
The FH020AA or SH775 brand new is $100
