Rolled into local gas station last week after 200 mile ride and 01 SV650 wouldn’t re-start. Dead battery, would barely make stater motor go uuugh. Got a friend to help me load it on a trailer and on home. Turned out the battery was okay after re-charging. Charging system wasn’t working. Did various test as per manual. My el cheapo volt meter doesn’t seem to be able to read Ohms in the 0.2-0.55 range. Just reads Zero for continuity. Five-six years ago I replaced (working OEM) RR with an ebay 7 wire Hayabusa RR. I taped off two of the battery connects and soldered the other two onto the connector. It now occurs to me that this may have created a weak current feed to the battery thus stressing the generator. Not sure, but I think it might be better to connect each of the two like wires to #10 copper wires and run straight to battery. Anyway, RR seems to be okay. Generator output not okay: poles 1-2 at idle 9.6 ac amps, 2-3 idle 20.2 amps, 1-3 18.6 amps: and 1-2 @5k rpms 9.6 ac amps, 2-3 @5k rpms 71 ac amps, 1-3 @5k rpms 71 ac amps (connector looks like this -- || called – as #1 pole, shouldn’t matter). Removed stator, shows some burn, overheating on coil(s) near pickup coil. Pic also shows spot where very thin covering material is worn, scraped off pickup coil pole – don’t think this is a problem.

So, anyone have experience with after market stators. I’ve found Rick’s on ebay, Accel 152483 on Amazon, and Regulator/Rectifier.com. All are about the same price $130. Am also thinking I should replace the RR (to regulate/rectify doubts about it). Probably should spring for a new FH008
MOSFET type. Any advice, recommendations, comments most welcome.

I got an Eastern Beaver RR kit to hook up a MOSFET RR as a preventative measure and to provide more juice since I want to run electrical accessories. The kit is very high quality, unfortunately the FH008 is not a direct fit to a 2005 SV650s. I fabbed up a bracket but it needs a little more work to fit properly so I reinstalled the stock RR. The problem is the FH008 mounting holes are closer together than the stock RR.

So if you can deal with making a bracket and adding the new connectors, the Eastern Beaver kit and an FH008 is a great choice. I got my RR from ebay for $100 shipped, it was in good shape. The seller was aceoverseas. Let me know if you have any questions, good luck!

I ordered a new stator from Ricks, new gasket, and won an ebay 07-10 CBR600 RR couple days ago. I've seen references to Easter Beaver in archived posts and browsed their site; will take a look at the Eastern Beaver kit. I'm not so concerned with beefing up charging as much as just doing a good fix; however, I do use an electric vest in winter. First thing I did dealing with problem was put in larger battery which I had on hand (like is in 2nd gen model); I wrapped the fuse and blinker modules in bubble rap to secure and keep them from bouncing around. Although nothing is wrong with the battery that was in the bike, I think I'll go with the larger one. I have gas and arc welders, so making a new bracket for the CRB RR shouldn't be too difficult. Thanks for the reply and good luck with your project -- ken

Hey doogster, thanks for your comments. I've read two or three of D'Eccose's posts, picked up lots of good info, unfortunately the vid referred to is no longer up. Today, I received an ebay 07 CBR600 FH008 RR; still waiting for Ricks stator and gasket from Roy Ayers. With the RR in hand I think I'll order the Connectors kit for direct hookup to battery from Eastern Beaver. Also, I can go ahead with fabing a mount for the CBR RR. Fortunately, I have a second SV, an 07SV; so I have the luxury of taking my time getting the 01 going again.
