Yes, MORE Stator Questions.
Ok, so my battery has been going dead. I had a couple of rear turn signal wires exposed, and thought maybe that was it; nope. After charging the battery all night, rode the bike 30 minutes to work, started up at the end of the day, rode the 30 minutes back, and it died again.
To make a long story short, I tested each of the wires coming from the stator, with red lead on one wire and black lead at the bikes ground point. I got continuity on all three wires. Now, the Clymer manual says to do this with the engine warm; I didn't, does it really make that much of a difference?
My next question is where is the best place to get a stator?
I called the bike shop here in Georgetown, TX, and they told me the stator is $445 + tax, and another $550 to put it in.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
