    Hard exactly the same on mine,new reg/rec cured it.

    Sounds like I might be able to go direct for a new reg/rec rather than buying a voltage monitor and getting confirmation that the voltage is all over the place. Oh wait, I've already ordered the voltage monitor.

    As for a replacement reg/rec, I'm a little uncertain where to source this. I've read the 2018 thread in which StevieP recounts the tale of replacing his R/R in time for the Megameet, in which he wrestles (mentally, obviously) with various options (FH020AA? FH012AB? etc).

    I'd appreciate any advice of part specification and possible suppliers of a suitable R/R. My Tiger is a 2016 XRX (so no heated seat - ludicrous idea!)

    Apologies if this sounds a bit needy but I'm all at sea on stuff like this. Oh yes, and I don't want to end up paying Triumph's exorbitant margin.

    My thoughts
    FH012  Original from 2011
    FH020  Replacement from around 2015
    AA/AB suffix are not really indicative of anything we need to worry about.
    Either OK, but my experience was the 020 was more stable, however, I used lots of Di-electric grease on my connections, so maybe that helped.
    Fit OEM, not aftermarket, unless its a Ricksport thing. Used oem  would be my preference rather than unbranded, even from respected dealers.
    YMMV, as they say.

    If your quick

    I would definitely do the voltage monitor test during a ride around the block as it is a lot of trouble to replace the existing R/R and it may be unnecessary. However, if at any point during the test the voltage goes above, say 15 V, then the R/R will almost certainly need replacing. As said, it's best to replace with an Shindengen OEM R/R because they don't all work the same way and other makes may be less reliable.

    No, I didn't really have any wrestling with options just hassle getting what I wanted fast and preferably cheaper then Triumph price. I wanted a replacement FH020AA and eventually ordered one from my dealer but when it arrived Triumph had fobbed me off with an old model FH012AB packaged under the FH020AA part number and I suspect they were sneakily clearing old stock. :023:

    I would definitely stick with FH020AA as your replacement and I'm also in the buy a genuine (new or s/h) Shendingen one group, not a cheap pattern one.

    As for heated seats .... I only got the XRt because at the time I fancied a change from boring black/white/blue option of the other models and I really liked the orange. I had no interest in the heated gizmos .... until I tried them and now I wouldn't want to give them up (and others here have voiced the same). The seat heats the base of the spine, a major blood flow point around the body and as such is really appreciated as an all year around rider and though I've removed the hard Triumph heated seats I was fortunate enough that the super Sargent seats I bought on here had a heated front one. :028:

    Update: I've ordered a plug-in voltage monitor and a reg/rec (FH020AA). But I'll take AJWDthumper's advice and run the voltage monitor on the bike before attempting to replace the reg/rec.

    Thanks for all your help, guys. I'll let you know whether the remedy solves the problem. :763:

    This is a bit late. But just to let you know that I replaced the reg/rec with a 40 second-hand one off eBay. Bingo! Problem solved.

    So thanks to everyone who helped with info etc.

    I had this problem on the 800. The wiring from the rear wheel sensor had shorted to the cable clip on top of the swing arm.
