    I can't get to the dealer. Their website is under construction and I want to get the part from UK.

Hi,

Unfortunately not as the GSX 550 has a higher output then the GS 550. Plus the rectifer/regulator wiring is different also.

If you did try it you'll find that the stator is a little bigger and has different mountings.

Hope this helped

Thanks

Jason

If the parts look the same I guess. But, I think that they call it 'rectifier' in a motorcycle and an 'alternator' for a car, although they do the same thing, basically.

Are they from the same class and year of motorcycle with the same engine?

I would double check with the dealer on this one. 1982 was a little before my time.

They have a cross reference.

    If their website is under construction, you might try another source.
