R/R has blown again on my VFR800fi 2001 I fitted a after market one last year, as I was told that OME are only good use was as a paperweight and are a load of crap, any how that's blown again so I got another one off EBay, I was going solder the joints as I believe the problem is with the connections to the wiring harness and wires getting to hot, a problem made worse due to me living in Cyprus, the problem I have is I been sent the wrong R/R for a 99 model and mine is a 01 ( I didn't know there was a difference) Can I wire this up, as my old one has a extra black wire, can I wire this to the out going red, is the question, the part was order from China and had to pay import duty, so returning it is going a long time and could be expensive, was just wondering if it can be retro wired. Any one know?

Don't know the answer but good to see your still around and likley even this time of year getting riding weather Thumbs Up

I know I've wired up Yamaha rectifiers to an NC30 before so know in essence they all do the same thing its that extra wire I'd be unsure about

Got a feeling it's to do with the HISS system, as that the only thing different on a 99 and a 01.

Hi flipper, the Black wire from the 2000-01 Reg/Rec feeds the White/Black wire to the Engine Stop Sensor , have a look at this one, seller will also take questions smile

Do you want the long version or the short version? Laugh

Short version: that extra wire makes zero difference. You can use this new one on your bike no problem. Regarding soldering the wiring... it was already being hotly debated a good fifteen years ago when I had my VFR and probably it's still debated these days. On the bikes I've seen it appears to make zero difference as failure rates go, but I haven't heard of anyone catching fire after soldering the connections. Just yet. Laugh

Thanks mate, good to hear from you again, how's life in the land of flat roads, and expensive beer?
