    take a volt meter and with the engine running full throttle you should have 12.6 or better for charging. If not pull the connector off of the regulator set your meter on AC volts and test across the outer terminals in the plug end. Full throttle. If you don't have 28 volts or more the your stator is bad. If you do have 28 volts or better then your regulator is bad.
    Post your questions on the repair forum. I just happened upon your post here.

    I forgot to tell you that it's 28 volt AC current. So set your meter to ac volts
