Depending on the assembly quality of the unit and the amount heat exposed even the good Mosfet units are known to fail. I'm not talking about the Triumph units specifically but all bikes in general. They make these units extremely small and so they have to dispense a lot of heat and then manufacturers try to hide them because they're ugly. Hiding them usually means reduced air flow and I think you can get the picture.

Just hope for the best though. Still, after reading this, it just plays around in my mind. Maybe the older models, its more of where the R/R is located?

Location is important but they clearly had a batch of bad units. The design itself is not a problem as bikes of all kinds have been using shunt type rectifiers for decades without issue.

Digging up this old thread,
Has anyone had success just repairing the wiring from the R/R?

My 2011 had no issues with electrical power or warning lights, just melted the wires at the 3 pin connector where yellow wires meet black. No external evidence of R/R damage.

I have, had wires melt just before the plug coming from the stator and close to the reg/rec.

My fix was to cut the plugs out and out in connectors for each wire. Voltage was steady at 14.5 when bike is running, was clearly facing resistance as it was lower until I removed the plugs.

I noticed some newer style butt end connectors on the market. they are actually a solder connection and heat shrink all in one... gonna get some and try them out.
I have been hard wiring (directly soldering wires) on V65 Magna's for years to eliminate the burnt connector issue...
no plug, no more heat melt issues at that connection.
I've also used mosfet R/R upgrades on all VFRs, and my D955i with larger guage wire all the way from stator and the appropriate mosfet plugs (like De'course method) with 100% success!
