Sounds like a bad stator or R/R.. the reason your stator wires look burnt wires more than likely due to poor connections caused by, as you said, corrosion. I suggest you look at my flow chart, do exactly as it says, fill it out completely and post your finding back up here. Then we can pinpoint exactly what is going on.

Tim Parrot for the stator... http://tpe-usa.com/ 69.99 plus s&h

and as far as the R/R we were getting a Shindegen FH012A MOSFET R/R from www.roadcycle.com. But his supplier ran out of stock. Now Jack makes his own and sells a whole kit for 130 bones plus S&H.... The Super Mosfet Kit FH020AA
Easy, fast and complete.
and a good write up on the upgrade Shidegen R/R Install

Find out which is bad first.

Stator: get it rewound by tim parrot (www.tpe-usa.com)

R/R: You can buy a used stock R/R from many bikes VN750, Ninja 600, etc and its a direct swap. Alternatively you can do the MOSFET R/R mod. Good mod - look it up.

This helps me a lot too, thanks!! Stator wires started heating up a lot but as far as I could tell it was still charging. Need to spend some quality time with my bike and your chart!

I'd suggest snipping the butt connectors and soldering the wires together. Less resistance! Also clean your connectors with electric cleaner and pack them with dialectic grease to keep them clean.

yea, I was also thinking of replacing as much as I can of the stator and R/R wires with new wires. I'll solder the wires too, good advice there, thanks! Definitely need to go over all connections and clean them up. Been long since I paid enough attention to the bike!
