It's an advantage because you don't have to replace the fuse. Really, it should never trip and the fuse should never blow unless you get a dead short to ground.

I agree with Joe, the over heating of the fuse holder is due to too much contact resistance in the holder, probably shitty plating. If you have 0.1 ohm of contact resistance and 10 amps going through it that's 10 watts which is plenty to melt a little thing like that after an hour with no way to dissipate the heat.
P = I x I X R?

I dont really remember my electrical engineering classes too well, but I know P = I x E because mmmmm pie....


Comparing a breaker and fuse holder, the breaker definitely looks like it can handle more power without melting.. Does a marine breaker differ much from those ones used for households? Not exactly certain about the availability of a "marine grade" over here where I currently am without ordering it.

I said marine breaker because they have standalone designs not made to go in a panel

Actually, I'm not sure I'm comfortable mounting that breaker unless I can figure out a way to cover those posts, one allen wrench bridging those hot points and Imma have roasted nuts....

Does anyone have a link to a reputable supplier of Shindengsen RRs?
A mate got burnt recently with a dodgy mosfet RR and I’m trying to avoid that experience.

Hey Cuz, where did your mate get the Mofset?

Hey Mate.
Just a random Ebay seller.
We mounted it up and tested it.
It was hot enough to cook eggs on and pushed less volts than the standard one (13.6v).
He is trying to hide the RR and wants a cooler running one.
I hope you and yours are having a wonderful end to your year.

Hey Cuz, I hope that you and yours are well. I have the Compufire 55402 which pushes out 14 but I think it's shitting the bed because it sometimes puts out about 12.5 at idle.

If you go on TRAT, there's a thread on it and they say there's a Shindedan that you can get from Bike Bandit that will work.

I'm looking to get a new RR but a Mofset from either Rick's or RM Stator

AA....tell your mate to get the Shendingen series style regulator....cheaper than the Compufire.

No mate, I don't. I recommend you read this thread on Trat. in the later part of the thread He talks about the Shendingan SH775 Series regulator and how to fit it. He recommends a part made by Triumph which is cheap to buy, to connect the R/R into the loom, called the Link lead. All that you need to know is in post #13 of that thread.

This is the R/R you need. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-Vol...=item25d8610199:g:ZPQAAOSw5dlaIDu-:rk:12:pf:0
