Blair my friend, not sure exactly what it would do to the battery, but riding the bike without it, the battery will not be charged. Seems you know this already. Im thinking 5 miles would not be a problem but if you have to stop alot it might be, not sure how many miles/minutes you can go on just a battery. As long as your stator wires are protected so they wont short i dont see how it could hurt the stator, just to answer that question. Listen if your regulator being pluged in is making your fuse blow get a mosfet regulator. The 3 wires that go to the one R/R you have now are not used with a mosfet. you just cut them at the connector cover the ends and just tape them up with the existing wire harness. The mosfet uses your stator wires and new wires that come with the kit that go to the battery, Real easy. Ive been through this. As long as the bikes wiring wasnt modified in this area there are splices in the harness that cutting them 3 wires at the connector will not have any effect on the rest of the wires.
