Please correct me if I am wrong but my understanding is that the SH775 is a series type regulator which effectively "switches off" current from the stator when not needed.  I researched this fairly extensively during my issues with stator overheating and therefore selected this over the FH020 as whilst this unit is more efficient than the stock original fit regulator, it is still a shunt type which ensures that the stator is delivering its maximum available current at all times.  The SH775 and FH020 are identical in size: W: 90mm, D: 84.5mm, H: 32mm whilst the SH847 is W: 120mm, D: 135mm, H: 40mm.  The 847 is also a series type and clearly a more capable product with much higher rating but I did not select this as the specs are far higher than needed for the generator/stator fitted to the early Z1300's and also too large to fit under the left hand side panel.

You're right. My bad. The SH775 is a series regulator. I guess I got over zealous and relied on my 66 year old brain while writing the prevous post. I went back in and corrected it. I hate miss information. Sorry for that.

There 

There are so many fakes out there - my advice, if not buying new from Roadster Cycle, is to buy a used one from a breakers yard that has been pulled from a Triumph or BMW

1990 ZZ-R1100 C1
