    Replacing the regulator and keeping the 'sock' in place?

    Hi All, it has been a few years since I have posted but alas I have the dreaded stator failure on my 06 with 37000 miles for the first time. I have ordered replacement Electrosport stator and precautionary regulator / rectifier. I would appreciate advice on how to re-use the plastic 'sock' cover thing, which covers the connectors between the stator and the reg / rec. I can find loads of posts on replacing the stator, but not much on the reg / rec. Is it possible to re-use this item, or what have others done when replacing the reg / rec if the replacement does not come with one of these covers pre-fitted? Thanks Steve.

    The best advice is don't replace the regulator/rectifier (RR) if it hasn't proven to be faulty. The original factory fitted RR is a very robust Shindengen MOSFET unit unlike many of the inferior sub 100 RR's on the market.
