Voltage Regulator failure

I've been reading a lot lately about the voltage regulators and stator failures on these 570's. Is that mainly on the 2017 version? Does anybody here have a 2016 that has had these issues?

The 2019's have an updated part number..So it's 2018 and older.

Does anyone know if the supposed new and improved regulator from the 2019 models will fit prior year models? Or are we forced to keep using the prone to failure old model? I was very fortunate my machine didn't catch fire when mine failed

Yes the newer version will fit but you’d have to buy the VR and the harness is seperate. Both parts way overpriced and I doubt quality is improved. Much better options out there.

I put a rzr regulator on mine and with some modifications it fit perfect. it has been flawless and the voltage is much more stable

(failed at 350 miles and now has 1400)

Can you enlighten us on those "other options" that are available? I would like to replace mine now while it still works instead of 50 miles out on the trails with no cell phone service.

VR’s now in my Atv’s are from RicksMotorSport Electrics and were originally designed for RZR’s. They have just modified the wiring harness and are making them for Sportsman’s.

That one looks sick bp. Big bucks but you can’t beat the lifetime warranty!

Thanks for that insight, looks like I'm going to pay Ricks a visit.
