Open question for the qroup:
I would like to upgrade the charging system on my 84 R100RS (think driving lights as I live in an area with an abundance of large rodents (deer)). At the risk of opening a can of "electrons", I am trying to decide on an aftermarket charging system upgrade.
I like the looks of the new Enduralast system, however, have some heartburn about the way the voltage is regulated. We use a lot of SCR's in my work and they are very reliable . However, the Omega system is a proven unit with "billions" of miles and uses a more "conventional" regulator which also has a long history (we use lots of these in power supplies for communications equipment). My wife says Engineers think too much, but neither is cheap.
How many of you are using the Omega system?
How many are using the Enduralast?
What are the Omega drawbacks/complaints?
What failures of either system has anyone had?
thanks for the advice.
