    hello ha! As mad as cheese i have the same problem rectifier and having endless bad luck as well. Mine decided to blow fuse then i pushed n replaced fuse got a while down the road n stopped at traffic lights saw smoke shot off pulled fuse and chucked me pop over it. Surely they dont go like that it still starts but rectifier smokes? Any ideas?

    • Did you see my post on here yesterday?! Mine conked too, and was getting smoke off the reg/rec. Have bought a CBR125 one off eBay, and hoping it arrives on Monday. Think the hot weather is the final straw for these things! Good luck with yours!

    • Ok Sharon, go with the reg/rec, pretty much a straight swap over, with a bit of luck let’s hope that nothing else has fried, (finger crossed)

    • No i didnt but is gettin as common as dreaded ccts and other little gremlins that come along. lol Keep us posted c wot happends. :)

    • search for MOSFET regulator/rectifier.

    • Fit an r6 one. Fit and forget

    • Yeh, Once all the smoke has leaked out they stop working. :-(

    • The part number in that picture says it all...
