Found a Dutch breaker on eBay, selling a decent looking, complete set (including the required drive and base) for affordable € 380,-...

Just make sure you change the fuse as well. We have a guy out here who bought an 1100 after the 40A upgrade but still running the original fuse and had no end of trouble on some circuits as the OEM 40amp runs a 55 amp.

I've gotten a complete post '96 wiring harness, including the big, high amp alternator connection to battery and starter relay, the rubber boots and the big ass mains fuse casing.
With that avail its really a simple drop in installation.
Only waiting for warmer climate now...
