Voltage regulator, which is best?

I have an 05 RG and need to replace voltage regulator. Which is best, Cycle Electric or Drag Specialties? They both claim made in USA.

I have the Cycle Electric VR in my 2012 Custom and think it's great.
I liked it so much I also bought their Stator that I'll be installing when the time comes.
I checked a lot of reviews before I went with them.
Can't speak of the Drag Specialties tho.

I’ve used cycle electric ones in the past and never had any issues. Never used drag specialties.

Cycle Electric here , stator alternator and VR , love it .. Bike idles better and crazy as it sounds , runs better too .. Much better low rpm charging than HD ..

Bought the 50 amp kit on amazon for less than 5 C notes .. Couple hours down time and was rolling again ..

I got a factory one only cause my buddy worked at the dealer and gave it to me for his cost, but if it fails next time cycle electric all the way, seems to be better built unit. looks well built just looking at it.
