You can use any old reg/rec on your bike , most of them are built the same way, Hondas use 3 gold wires from the generator , and red / green wires, on older bikes they have single red and single green wires.

On newer bikes they seem to have two red and two green...

Just solder them in and it works, JCB bought my NTV which has a CBR600RR reg/rec under one of the panels.


I replaced the one on the Africa twin with one off a Yamaha Xj600.

And the CBR600 has 2 reg/recs the flat honda one and a ZX6R reg/rec. Just try to match the same size bike with the reg/rec you put on. Also use cush rubbers to save them from vibrations and move them to put better airflow over them so they don't die as easy. The NTV I sold JCB has a PC fan cable tied to it.

My reg went so I put a different one on. Works fine so what he said goes for me.

Easiest is to buy one with the same number of wires.
