Alternator/generator/regulator problems of the 1996 Honda Accord

Two problems related to alternator/generator/regulator have been reported for the 1996 Honda Accord. The most recently reported issues are listed below.

car   Alternator/generator/regulator problem 1
Failure Date: 10/01/2016

My alternator is not charging my battery. My wire harness is having a faulty and I can't figure it out.

car   Alternator/generator/regulator problem 2
Failure Date: 02/28/2000

This latest electrical system failure has yet to be dianosed by a mechanic; I am guessing the cause is the same as the 2 previous failures. Whether my guess is correct, the bike's electrical system failed completely, causing loss of power with no warning, while I was riding in the middle (third) lane of the freeway at 65mph. A Honda technician who replaced a defective regulator on this bike before told me the units tended to fail because they were intended for touring and didn't perform well in commuter conditions. Have you heard this before?.
