Default What rectifier should I get for a 97 honda cbr 600

I just got through testing my bike and I definately need a rectifier. So I was wondering which one should I get, as there are quite a few to choose from. Somewhere between $50-$100....

I heard metal fins are a good thing. Other than the RR I'm good..... and thx for the help.

One that fits............

Seriously though - you get what you pay for, and sometimes not even that. Keep that in mind when pricing anything.

Yeah, heatsink fins are a Good Thing™ - but only if it's mounted someplace that can take-advantage of the cooling. Or if it comes equipped with a fan or something.

For the life of me, I just cannot figure-out WHY the moto-mfgrs cannot adopt a regulated-field armature rather than a permanent magnet. The way they set these things up, they are all DESTINED to fail under too-much or too-little use. And the undersized, crappy wire, flimsy connectors, and cheap vinyl insulation they use on bikes....... You'd think the Japanese were copying GM.

OK, that turned-into a Rant. I'll just STFU now. When you find yourself in a hole, the first step finding a way out is to STOP DIGGING............

Ok...... the rr on my bike is on the outside of the frame just under the fairings.... so it gets air. I should get one with fins, thats a given, but is there a brand that last longer/cheaper?

I just started riding a few weeks ago, and figured out the rr was bad. Luckily I have some automotive experience, so I just wanted some opinions....lol... don't want to buy into the hype.... Thx
If you think you got it, you don't got it. If you don't think you got it, you still don't got it.
