    Yes, the word-wide supply chains currently do have quite broad ranges for delivery; covid, evergreen, etc. pp.

    Generic three-phase R/R's are produced&used in the millions. Instead of exclusively online, you can also ask your nearest friendly motorcycle shop if they have an used one to spare, rummage through a scrapyard, or some local parts dealer.

    You can disconnect the stator, yes, but the battery is intended for starting an engine, not prolonged use. Depending on what exactly you're trying to do; you run the risk of discharging your battery too far; this will damage it or at the very least shorten it's lifecycle considerably.

    Noreg, you may want to post up a picture of the SH775 you bought on ebay. There are may fakes out there. You want a genuine Shindengen SH775. A picture of the top fin showing the white lettering, would almost guarantee that it's legitimate.

    As stated, Running the bike while your battery is getting 18v from your defunct charging system isn't good for the battery, which you may want to replace anyway. Running your bike with out the stator connected will only let the bike run for so long. "you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do you, punk?"

    I don't know if this option is available, but if if you have a scrapyard/bike-breaker near you, pick up a R/R from any 80s/90s Honda. It should be easy enough to wire in, and will tide you over until you get your SH775.

    Thank you, this led me to the correct Norwegian term for this thing. Made it easier to google alternatives.

    I had a car with a broken alternator, and it had a pretty limited range. But being able to ride it back to the garage would be easier.

    I will check with the motorcycle repair place and such. Maybe post on a local facebook page.

    I will ask around. I don't think there is scrapyards anywhere closer than Trondheim (900 kilometers, 600 miles). Could do the trip though (on the CBR125).

    Looks legit! Good one. And $100 is a great price for a new one.

    Here's a pretty decent way to estimate shipping time: If it's coming out of a metro area on either coast expect the latest date to apply, if it's coming out of a major city in the middle of the country you can expect the earliest date to apply.

    That's too far to try and find something that may or may not be available. Two other options occur to me - would the RR from your 125 be compatible with your GS? Alternatively, would you like me to try to find a cheap 'temporary' RR here in the UK? Postage to you shouldn't take too long, fingers crossed.

    The 125 is not mine, it is a work motorcycle, so I am not at liberty to dismantle it for spares. But I am sure it is sufficient to get out on the road for some scenic rides if it stops snowing again.

    If you can find something reasonable that might be of interest. How much do they run? I really want to get it running so I can sort it out. I haven't depleted all the potential local sources, but I am a bit swamped with work and studies right now (exam time).
