I have posted for years to verify the 4012941 by the numbers printed opposite the sockets, SH775BA and 4012941 both appear. When on Ebay the first fake indicator is if it is under $150 USD listed as NEW
. The second indicator is if there are numerous photos, but none showing the side with the printing on.
The number looks right, 4016868, but better PM Onewizard. The point of getting a series regulator to replace the basic shunt OEM is to keep your stator from overworking and dying in an awkward situation. So if you buy it install it, not that hard but a bit of wiring retrofit. Many of us have done it...
Yes I have stepped back from buying and selling the 4012941 ,when what I have are gone , that will be it, shipping is ridiculous and it has become a bit overwhelming with my last purchase, PayPal screwed me around and went and used my credit card, even though money was in the bank, this happened over Christmas so it took 3 weeks to sort out.Our dollar dropped and they tried to hit me with a $$ increase over the original purchase, over 5 phone calls and 2 supervisors, mid January I finally got my account with PayPal working again.
As to the newer Polaris the 4016868, the only way I would purchase that is from a Polaris dealer, I paid $128 Canadian ( $15 of that was tax)in July 2018.
I say the only way from a Dealer , because there is no markings or other way to prove it isn't a fake.So the days of buying used on Ebay, are gone unless you are buying from a wrecker and it is out of a sled . Most of these wreckers are selling these at 60% to 75% of new, is it really worth it saving $$ when shipping needs to be added into the equation?
I am trying to get all the photos together and post in For Sale tonight.
