Need Serious Help

I have a serious problem. In the laaast few months i have replaced the R/R, installed a new M/F battery and just picked up the bike from havinf a new stator installed

Hadedout on memorial day for the 1st good ride in a year.
45 miles later I had to jump start the bike. Rode for 60 more miles repeated jump start
Finally towed the bike home. Checked the battery output, wiht no load about 14 volts. With a load 10 to 13 volts.

i have had the bike for 10 months and have pushed and prayed the bike more than ridden...
any suggestions please

What brand stator and R/R were installed? Ricks/electrosport doesn't have a great record for reliability lately.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

You already found your issue right there. Just hope that you didnt fry your stator because of it. Dont ever go with a used R/R or Stator "EVER". Good luck.

Without a load you had 14 volts? The way I understand it is without a load on a full battery you should have, roughly, 12.5 volts. Under a load and between 3-4k rpm's you should have around 13.5-14.5.

Am I wrong???
