    Not sure if this is common knowledge here and/or already considered
    useless[1] information; came across this website listing part numbers
    for various Hondas:

    [1] I was trying to find a part number for the CB250/400 Superdream
    Reg.Rect.[2], but could not find those bikes listed.
    [2] which is said to work in the 750SS

  2. That's quite handy. Mind you, has fiches for all four Japanese
    Try the CB350S and the CB450 - same engines, basically.

    Here you go:-

    Ah bummer, I'm wrong again :)

    reason I assumed it was American market bikes only was the lack of
    VFR750s between 87 & 89 which was, IIRC, the years that the seppos got

    Thinks: ah, I phrased my initial post badly - cmsnl is by no means just
    US Honda models but the first site posted seemed to be US only. I
    should've snipped your suggestion of cmsnl.

    Ignore me, I'm not firing on all cylinders this week

    (snip lots of further detailed technical info)

    Yes, but will a Chinese-made pattern reg/rect that happens to work when
    connected to a CB250 be an as good and long lasting "pattern" substitute
    for my 750?

    Without detailed knowledge of reg/rects, I simply follow general
    Ducatisti advice stating that the Honda CB250/400 Superdream ones seem
    to do nicely on the SS. I've not seen anywhere that "any" reg/rect that
    can keep a CB250 charging also is a good pattern unit for the SS.

    Of course. Nothing wrong with a CB250/400 reg/rect whatsoever, and
    I did not say that there was, nor did I try to dissuade you from
    using one.

    If you would be so kind as to re-read what I wrote, nowhere did I
    say or even imply that a cheap reg/rect will be as good as a high
    quality one. All I said was that if the unit is of the proper
    type, it will interchange. Not really the same thing at all.

    So to restate, by all means, buy a high quality reg/rect from whatever
    source tickles your fancy, but be aware that Superdream reg/rects are
    nothing special, that is, they aren't any more of a "universal donor"
    type than a compatible reg/rect from another marque.

    The point I was trying, somewhat unsuccessfully, to make was that you
    have more choices available. Not that just any old cheapy chinese
    piece of crap reg/rect would be as good as a high quality unit- but
    that many more units are compatible than you might think.

    Any clearer now?
