1: The left cover on the engine has two cables that come out of it. follow these two, (you may have to remove the left side cover where the fuse box is) one of these cables has three yellow wires. disconnect these three wires. The order they are in makes no difference, so just pull them apart. Check each one for continuity to ground. If you get any, that's a bad thing.
2: check the resistance from each yellow wire to the other two yellow wires. These should all be around 1/2 ohm
3: start the bike, set the meter for A/C voltage, and check the volts between each pair of yellow wires. Should be around 20VAC at idle and up to 80VAC around 4k~5k RPM
my stator passed the first two tests, but only put out around 10VAC at idel and up to 20VAC at 4k RPM.....good luck
