PARTS:

R1   330 ohms resistor
R2   270 ohms resistor
R3   470 ohms resistor
R4   1.5K ohms resistor
R5   1.2K ohms resistor
R6   100 ohms resistor
P     100 ohm potentiometer
C1, C2, C3     100nF ceramic capacitors
Q1,Q2      BC327 transistor

Q3     BD244 series transistor.   BD244 rated at 45V; BD244A rated at 60V; BD244B rated at 80V, BD244C rated at 100V.  Rating of all are 6 amperes and Vce-sat is max 1.5V  ***Snowbum says that if replacing Q3, a higher current rated transistor is a good idea, such as 10 ampere.  A lower Vce-sat would also be helpful for longer life.

D1     1N4148 diode
D2     BZX6V2 zener diode, 6.2V
D3     1N4003 diode, can substitute 1N4004, etc.
D4     Diode has no markings, but a 10A, 50V or higher rated diode should be OK.

D+   Regulator input, from output of diode board and to alternator telltale lamp.

Df   Goes to one brush/slip ring of the alternator rotor.

D-    Goes to the other brush/slip ring of the alternator rotor, and to bike ground via a brown wire.
