Mmm, similar situation with my 2013 800r.
Price quoted for fitting a replacement at dealer. 370!

My bike had inexplicably switched off when slowing down through the gears on 3 occasions recently.
To restart, the ignition required switching of then back on to fire up.
When serviced today at the dealers, I mentioned the cut outs and the teccy noticed a pulsating headlight beam.
A check across the battery terminals displayed a pulsating charge rate from 13 to 18v.

Investigations show the reg/rec to be a common item used on a number of manufacturers bikes.
I've sourced a replacement for 35. I'll report again once I fit the replacement.

I get the impression a major contributing factor is heat, and the threads suggests that the location of the R/R on the Tiger is better for heat dissipation.
I wonder if you do commuting, or the ambient temp i your neck of the woods is higher than average?
The original FH012aa is replaced by the FH020aa anyway.
Ensure your connections are not burnt or discoloured before reassembly and lube/protect with your choice of product, as discussed on the forum with regard to general electrical connections.
Good luck.
I never got round to fitting mine yet. trying to decide if I can release the rusty rad mounts without damaging anything.

My Tiger isn't a commuting bike. Mainly longer runs.
I've covered about 17,000 miles in 4 years on her.
I reside on the Lancashire/Yorkshire border, so hardly tropical.
I don't suppose siting the reg/rec behind the radiator and directly above the exhaust header pipes aids temperature!
The expired reg/rec on my bike is the later 20AA version.

My replacement reg/rec was delivered today.
Fitted, working, output tested at battery terminals and delivering a nice steady 14.5 volts.
If you need a replacement at any stage, use the part number stamped on the base of the reg/rec, not the
triumph part number.
Mine is a FH020AA, sourced through a Yamaha outlet. just under 36 inc' delivery.

Superb timing as the Tiger and I are booked on the ferry to Dublin this next Thursday. :017:

... the teccy noticed a pulsating headlight beam.
A check across the battery terminals displayed a pulsating charge rate from 13 to 18v.

Noticed the same last set of shifts at 9pm when starting bike in the bike shed in works car park. As I have just removed seats to remove battery to access rear wheel sensor to investigate MIL, ABS & T/C fault lights permanently on, I thought with the above post in mind, I would check my battery/charge.

Engine off ...  :028:


... and at tick-over.  :005: :172:


Really starting to despair at the issues this bike has had, more failures in 2.5yrs than my 39yr old T140 Bonneville and 6 months out of warranty. :232:
Time to cross check the XRt part number against the other models and if cheaper Yamaha replacement viable?
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Yep deffo reg rec failure there. I always thought the FH series units were reliable.

Hopefully the static voltage indicates I've caught it before frying the battery .... if I have to add a battery to the current expenses I will be even more pi**ed off than I already am ... and that's without any more expense the warning light issue might bring. :151:

IMO, it's worth fitting some sort of monitor, cheap enough so a no brainer for me
