Before you get too excited,
VW regulators are preset for a much higher output than a Bosch for a motorcycle. It will cook your battery in no time. If they worked right everyone would have one since they are cheap. But they don't!

Oh, and as for posts;
DF=F on Gen
D+=A on Gen
B+=Battery
61= not used, or wire it to the idiot light
All Bosch regulators have the same posts.
