What made you think and try a Honda Africa twin stator?

Auto - Thatís the European 750 Africa Twin. I used the search function on this website. I picked 2000 to keep it simple for checking on eBay and other shop by model searches.
  I bought on eBay. ALL the pix from all suppliers looked they come from the same Chinese factory. Rickís will charge more, but replace if you get a bad one.
  Mine is pumping out around 70 AC volts, better than stock!
The stock fuse box fuses the circuits: Main, Headlight, Signal, Ignition. The stock Reg sends power forward to shunt juice that it has a hard time actually regulating! The MOSFET just works and sends a steady, regulated current directly back to the battery. Iím using the little LED voltage reader sold by Roadster. Itís always looking right.
  I replaced the cheesey stock fuse box with a Digi-key set up, I found on this site. I moved all those fused connections away from the standard location to fit in the PC-8. I had to extend some of the wires from the old stock fuse panel wiring to move each little fused box out the way.

I purchased an Africa Twin stator on Amazon. $45.00 USD for the stator and ~$5.00 for a three year replacement plan.

Looks like the same kit I got. The $5 replacement charge makes it a better deal, just in case.
