by popular demand for '17....FOR SALE a plug and play mosfet EX conversion.

No illusions or false claims...the supplied genuine Shindegan mosfets will be sourced used...but the cool runner will no doubt offer a long service life.

Each regulator is to be vigorously cleaned and confirmed electrically operational, each bench tested and "live" tested on an EX when possible.

Conversion harness hand built using genuine Furakawa weatherproof connectors, using 14 gauge silicone jacketed wire...both crimped and soldered for reliability.

Mosfet and cable conversions will be available on a very limited basis at this price point.

$99 shipped in CONUS only, Paypal accepted. Further mounting suggestions shall follow. Interested parties please PM.

The cable only @ $60 CONUS only...you can provide your own mosfet. The wiring pattern can be easily altered as needed at the white connector.

Disclaimer- as with any electrical mod, I cannot..and will not... be held responsible for any...any...consequential/peripheral damages. Though this mod is a clear winner, the final responsibility as to the overall condition and integrity of your electrical system (and this installation) is YOURS.

Someone has posed the question....which EX's will it fit?

Answer 87-09 EX 500 88-07 EX250 some LTD's and Vulcans as well

your antiquated, 80's technology EX regulators are known to run very hot, cook from the inside out...meanwhile providing erratic output (to recharge the battery and provide system voltage)

when able, try feeling the cooling fins after you've taken a ride (heat is a byproduct of converting AC to DC voltage)

The more modern Mosfet provides stable output, runs way cooler, offers a much longer reliable lifespan.

read the old thread ZX10 regulator on a EX500 sometime http://www.ex-500.com/index.php/topic,27515.msg406149.html#msg406149

(my own Ducati and VFR mosfets in their 6th trouble free seasons)

This is a very popular mod for many bikes, not just the ninja 500. Couldn't be easier being plug and play. I'll take one :)

PM comin' your way, DH.

I got involved with these years ago due to the terrible reliability of the stock Honda VFR rr's. Mine ran *burning hot* 30 seconds after the bike was started from cold.

Converted the VFR, was so impressed, I then converted the then 15 year old rr (I didn't trust it) on my Ducati with the same old, reliable Shindengen from the ZX10. Both those in to 6th seasons now...zero issues (except for a ground issue...MY fault...on the Duc)

The modern Shindengen Mosfets offer stable output, run cool...and as a result ultra reliable, long lasting. I'll proclaim longer battery life too...result of a bit higher charging rate than the shunt type offer.

SUGGESTION...add a voltmeter of your choice, for early warning of charge system problems. Could save a lot of cussin', pushing or a rescue even.

*used* FH010 mosfets are commanding $70-100 on Ebay. My $99 pnp kit is truly a bargain. I'd urge to take advantage while my limited supply exists!

Interested in this. My output is crazy. While I start up the bike at night my high beams are super bright and then dim then super bright. I'm assuming from your description, this mod would eliminate this issue? What do you need form me? $99?

My remaining few units have each been live tested on an EX500.

Each is reliably outputting 13.8v-13.9v @ 1200RPM.

Once again, a bargain @ $99 shipped...once gone...likely it for this season.
