Motociclo Sydney
« on: September 16, 2018, 22:02 »
Anyone bought from these guys before?

Not far from our office in Sydney so figured Iíd go and see if I can get a replacement regulator from there.

One of what? Link goes to Motociclo home page.

I assume you mean one of their Regulator/Rectifiers on this page https://www.motociclo.com.au/products/product-type/general-service/service-items/charging/regrect

Their RRs must be gold plated judging by their prices. You can pick up a perfectly good RR on ebay for $50. Search for Shindengen SH530-12.

Any 3 phase RR with about 25A rating will do the job.

There are plenty of no-name cheapies on ebay for around $30 new. I've never tried one so can't comment on their quality. But given the price of electronic components these days, there's probably only $10 worth of electronic parts in a RR. All they have in them is a handful of diodes, a few SCRs (or Mosfets) and an IC chip. So who knows? Perhaps the cheap knock-off ones from China are just as good as the offerings from Shindengen, Electrex, Bosch, etc. Might be worth a punt.

Judging by the codes, these are Electrex r/r. Reliable in my experience, with benefit of warranty - if you don't fancy a punt with fleabay.

If you have the Redax alternator conversion then the RR10 is what you need. Mosfet technology too!

Last Monday I dropped in there for a Griso gear lever bolt broken after hitting a roo. Riding back to WA and needed gearchange.

Never been there before and did not expect it to be in stock.  On my way for 9 bucks.  Nice bloke.  Great little shop which he's expanding right now.

There mail order is great as well.They have a huge inventory of obscure hard to get bike accessories as well.There stock is like stepping back into the 60s,reminds me of Omades.Thats a huge compliment from me.Omades had been around since maybe the 30s and closed in the 80s

Iím a local of 2010 for about 30% of the year. We have an office there and my eldest son and daughter also live and work centrally.

Itís been useful, Jason did my clocks with same week turnaround, Greg sends big stuff to Sydney instead of Perth, Handcraft fibreglass were legends making my screens, and now Iíve added Motociclo to the list.

Wish I had a bike there!

I'll second that. I always pop in for a coffee when I'm in town. Motociclo buy alot of parts from DAM Classic Racing for servicing Lavs around Sydney and often just call for advice on obscure Laverda issues.
Judging by the codes, these are Electrex r/r. Reliable in my experience.
