Regulator / rectifier differences ?
« on: April 29, 2017, 19:49:15 »
I have a 08 Varadero with ABS, am having some charging system problems and all tests seem to point to the Regulator being the issue.

In Canada the dealer wants $503.00 but the unit is backordered with no ETA, I can find lots for the Non-ABS Version online for substantially less, is there that big of a difference between the 2 models ?

Any info is appreciated

Hi, vhenem.

I checked the catalogue from www.bike-parts-honda.com.
The rectifier for ABS models has part nr 31600-MBT-D51.
Non-ABS is 31600-MBT-D21.
That means it's probably not the same part.

Maybe you can try a search for used parts.
It's the same rectifier for all ABS models 2004-2011.
See you in Andorra :-)

It appears that there is no difference, vendor here lists only one part number and doesn't even ask if it's ABS or not for almost half of what Honda wanted. I did however find a person dismantling an 07 with about 50,000 km on it for cheap so will try a used one to see if my solve my problem.

Thanks for the links

Problem is sometime Chinese part does not do the job properly and in safe conditions ...  :-\
