Charging system problems. 05 @ 12k

Hi all,
I got my vulcan about 2 years ago w/ 6500 miles on it and have been doing basic maintenance and cosmetics.

Found my battery dead last week and started poking around for what to check.

I hadn't been watching the volt meter and it turns out I was getting nothing to the battery while running.

I pulled the r/r and checked the continuity/ohms on the pins and it's not reading anything.

I checked the continuity between the yellow stator inputs and they seemed ok but they also had a reading to the chassis. Two of the pairs seem to put out decent AC voltage and the other was lower.

At this point, I'm working on the assumption that the r/r is dead and the stator is shorting.

Based on the info I found here, I'm looking at getting a super mosfet kit from roadstercycle. But I'm not sure of the current "best practices" when it comes to the stator.

I saw the $400+ kit from TOC but it doesn't include the stator.

I might have the resources to do the machining on the cover and get one of the plate kits from gcextreme or similar.

If I get into the motor far enough to get the cover off, what else should I be doing?

Thanks in advance for the support and for keeping this great source of information alive!
