01 SV650S, in the middle of doing the R/R upgrade since mine went out. Picked up a wiring kit and LED voltage monitor from roadstercycle.com and a new FH012AA from eBay. Since the new R/R is substantially larger in size from the OEM I'm now looking for a new mounting location away from heat, moisture, dirt, etc. Anyone have any ideas? I'm leaning towards under the passenger seat but then there will be very little airflow if any.

The new Mosfet R/R will not need the same airflow as the oem. Others have placed the unit under the passenger seat without reported issues as far as I know. The Mosfet units do not produce the heat that SCR types(oem) do.

Moisture isn't a problem as far as I can tell. I have mine mounted under the tail of my bike and have ridden it in the rain plenty, no problems.
