If the stator is bad, the meter should show it. It will either be shorted to ground, or it will have an open circuit, which is the most common. the winding on the coils burns into at some point. But either one of those issues should show up on the meter. Check between all the yellow wires and see what you get. Then check between each yellow wire and engine ground and see what you get. One of the other will show up on the meter. You mentioned the rotor. I doubt that is the problem unless it has been damaged inn some way, such as contact with the stator. I've seen a lot of 1960s bikes run fine with the original rotor.
