XL1000 V2 Varadero Rectifier
« on: March 15, 2020, 04:47:57 PM »
Hello again. The rectifier has just gone on my 2002 XL1000 Varadero. I have been looking on Ebay and the prices vary from about £20 to about £80. Does anyone know if the cheaper rectifiers are any good? Or can anyone suggest a good place to buy one? Thanks

Use the search function (top right).

Plenty of previous posts re Regulator or Rectifier.
I wonder what happen if I click on this - Ooops

Hi Rafa,
            Like Charlie I've had a few go on mine, but I took the other route after buying a genuine Honda replacement only for that to quite quickly fail.   I've found that the cheap replacements last just as long as the real thing - and cost much less.   

The one on my bike just now is a second hand one, but not from a Varadero.   If you look at 'Honda Reg/rec' on ebay, you'll find the same reg/rec is fitted to all sorts of Honda bikes.   My current one is fron a 200cc.   It's lasted the longest....
My imaginary friend thinks you've got serious problems.
