Testing stator out of bike

Without going through endless threads on stator failures, I thought I'd throw this out here quick. Before I toss the engine back in the "twin" is there a way to check the stator with my ohm meter, and if so what readings am I looking for. The battery was fully charged when I picked up the bike so I could only assume it was charging properly before the shift rod broke on it.
I gotta work both jobs Friday & Saturday so I probably won't be putting the engine back in till Sunday or Monday if time allows.

You can check the leads to ground and it should be open. You can check one lead to another. Don't know the exact reading, but if you get all close reading the stator is more likely good. I am sure slim can help you on the reading to get.

Checking the stator can be done in this way



I do not know the correct values that you should get but if you measure over 2 coils (1+2) and then 2 other (2+3) they should be similar.

Hope this helps.

according the manual
meter range set to 1 ohm
0.34 to 0.52 ohm between the leads

Thanks, I could handle that. If this was a bike I was planning on keeping I would have just sent it out to Tim for a rebuild for good measure.
