I replaced mine as a preventative measure, so it didn't make much sense to buy the $200 + kit (not sure of exact price). This way turned out cheaper for me. Just putting another option out there.

A tip for ebay: search by the bike model rather than fh010 or fh012, ie search "zx14 regulator" for example. Often the seller does not list the R/R part number. There are other bike makes/models that use fh012 or fh010....I don't remember all of them anymore. I got lucky and found mine for $30. If you use the above example, there's one for $67.75 + shipping (no affiliation to me).

I've corresponded with this guy too, seems like a good guy, though I can't vouch for him:

New Fh012 for ~$100

hope this helps.

Correct. The replacement Triumph kit does not relocate it.

Cause it smells a lot like burnt plastic and it had a sort of... "viscous liquid" around a terminal. Could it be just the outer case?

Just a heads up: there are three fh010BA s on ebay now for ~$40 shipped. Search for "zx10 regulator"

I wonder how often will the R/R on newer bikes will be affected or is this a case of wear and tear issues? I only got my bike for 2 months and hate to see it get burnt because of manufacture defects...

It happens because the old style R/R's are sh!t. The ones fitted to later models are a different make and hopefully shouldn't cause a problem.
