Sonerai Alternator Regulator/Rectifier by Pete
You could also try the 'regulator' from your rotax dealer for the 912 - altho it's truly overpriced for the crude job it does. I'd think that an automotive regulator would be the best choice also, if they can indeed handle the crude output waveforms. Cheers, Pete Europa A239
