Replacement voltage regulators for Polaris 900XP, 2015 900 trail, 900s, 1000s, 1000XP, and 1000 turbo. NOTE: 2016 900 trail is different. SEE BELOW.
This is a VR made in Japan NOT China like all the factory regulators are for the 900 and the 1000. Japan has MUCH BETTER electronics. The unit also has 2 times the cooling fins. We have been using this VR for about 4 years now with NO failures. The stock VR would only last a week to couple months on the Z1 conversions due to the small charging system putting such a load on the regulator. There is no need to try to relocate the regulator either. We have seen no problems with water intrusion or overheating in the stock location under the driver's seat in over 3 YEARS! You are more than welcome to put it anywhere you want. Just remember, it needs air movement to cool.
I also recommend on the 2016-2018 1k Turbo to install the VR in the back like the 1000XP. The shorter the wiring, the less heat. Also 4 less connectors to have problems with.
If your regulator plugs look like this, we recommend to install the 1000XP regulator in the back. It will connect to the engine with the 3 yellow wires in 1 plug. Then put the red wire to power from battery usually on the starter solenoid and then the ground on the frame stud. Very easy install. Less issues from harness running up to the front and less connectors to get hot and melt.
