Very possibly the 80's bike part is the same part...... Or the 1/4 cost equivalent......

I know some parts on Honda outboards are compatible with bike parts and the bike parts are much cheaper.......

Or do what I di & go to an O?B breaker - buy a rectifier / regulator module. I discovered to my horror after I fitted my plotter than the original Clamshell only had a rectifier.... at 1500 RPM my battery was seeing a 16 odd V charge and it went up with the revs!

Got a Rect / Reg off a Suzi. Yes, I had to chop the wiring around, yes, I had to file 1/8" off the corner of the heatsink fins so it cleared the casing where I mounted it, but at least my battery isn't getting toasted. There is In theory nothing to stop you fitting a BMC regulator off a Morris Minor in your console by the battery...... ignoring corrosion issues!

Yep. fitted an MC. rec/reg to an old 40hp VRO Evinrude. Worked perfectly and was still going strong when the boat was sold, cost less than 30 from memory.
