Mosfet voltage regulator elusive

I have the '03 SV1000S. Has anyone found a cheap mosfet type voltage regulator? The Shindengen's are a little pricey for me. Surely the Chinese manufacture mosfet type regulators. EBay and Amazon are loaded with poorly described parts that may or may not be mosfet. I guess you know it's a real mosfet type when it's cool to the touch after a long ride and the voltage is stable. I've got 3 bikes I'd like to retrofit provided I can find an affordable part.

No guessing please. Here's a candidate found at Amazon today:

There was a Polaris OEM one that I have used in the past and they were pretty cheap from the local dealer.

My preference is a Compufire 3 phase series unit.

What I did last time I needed an RR was searched for a used one off a bike that comes with a high quality one.

I don't trust cheap Chinese electronics for something critical like that.

My search for just the facts on the mosfet regulator conversion are as follows. The best information I found was on the Honda SuperHawk forum (see link below). Based on that post I ordered a 2007 FZ1 regulator off EBay ($30 delivered).

Same day followup: I've acquired a basic understanding of the wiring. The Suzuki stator outputs 3 wires. You can locate them just by looking at the left side of the bike (exiting top of round section of engine casing just forward of shift lever). The order of those 3 wires as they connect to the regulator do not matter. They go to the grey connector of the Shindengen. The Shindengen's black connector uses 2 wires - one to battery ground, the other to battery positive. The middle of Shindengen's black connector is not used. Listed below is an Amazon kit ($15 delivered) you will need in addition to your mosfet regulator to make the conversion. You may optionally want some 10 gauge wire to run to your battery since the kit listed below does not include wire.

Honda
