It'll be ok for your bike because your bike is a 12volt bike with an ac stator the same as the 650..,the size of the engine doesn't effect that :)

Agree with HB.

Your stator is a 3 phase AC stator, exactly like the 650. Perhaps the size of the reg/rec might be slightly different. Will not be difficult to make it work.

Thank you guys,

I will wait for the response from my mechanic because already paid for the service and then I decide whether I'll buy this regulator

First...check the accuracy of the meter your measuring with !!! 16volts is not that far off.... If it is accurate, then, If your creative and want a cheap fix due to a limited budget...go to a wrecking yard and get an old "automotive" voltage regulator like off an old ford that is bolted to the inner fender and put it in line by hooking the charge wire going to the battery to the mechanical regulator..then out to the battery......after the normal regulator rectifier....since the old timey auto regulator only regulates voltage....and does not convert ac to dc.....a bit cumbersome...but will do the job when "funds are low"

Old Ford regulators worked badly, even on old Fords. In fact they worked badly even when the old Ford was new.My father's 80's era F150 had such a thing. That thing ate batteries like a washing machine eats socks!

The entire Hyo range of bikes from scooters to 125, 250, 650, Quads, "ALL" use the same RR.

I own both a GV250 and a GV650 (and other machines) and I have swapped the RRs from each machine many times when needed. The diode based RRs ALL prematurely fail, on ALL brands of bike.

Quite frankly, I am sick of replacing OEM sh!t RRs with replacement sh!t RRs. Why manufacturers risk their reputation by using cr@p electrics is something I can't understand.

Do yourself a favour and just source a MOSFET replacement. All the best brand Japanese bikes in the more prestige level use Shindengen RR. Even MotoGP use Shindengen.
Try your local Suzuki or Yamaha dealer, but you will pay much more from them.

If you insist on replacing your sh!t RR with another sh!t one, just buy any 3 phase RR that can deliver 10 amps or more and solder up the correct series 250 plug/socket for the 3 in and 2 out wires.

So what i hear you saying is....because my stock diode rr hasn't failed...it means Jesus loves me more than everyone else!
