Rectifier & Shock info on L2

I am thinking of possible upgrade to L2 and have a few questions:

1) is the rear shock on L2 just longer in length (if so, does anyone how much at the shock end), or does it have longer travel?

2) Does any know if the rectifier on L2 is a mosfet type?

thanks in advance,

cheers

The shock has more travel. The regulator acts like my MOFSET did on my Wee, but I can't say for sure.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

If it's holding a stable voltage with very tight variance then it must be a fet, a diode shunt regulator isn't going to match a fet.

Maybe when someone has a free moment they can pull the bolts and google the painted part number on the bottom of the regulator.

Well, the Suzuki part number is 32800-47H10, but that doesn't show much via Google.

The service manual lists 159mm for "Rear Wheel Travel".

I pulled mine off to add some heat sink paste. (Tip from a friend with a Honda). Didn't bother to note down the number.

Definately Shindengen, possibly FET. Like Greywolf, I suspect FET, it comes up to charging voltage at idle, the one on my K6 needed ~4000 rpm.

I did the same. Mine says SH811AA and 47H00 on the R/R. FET regulators look different and have 2 female connectors. Shunt R/R's have wires and a plug. Looks like there is a FET open style R/R. Never heard of that style. In the part # S is SCR style and F is FET style.
