I was thinking the AC voltage test was to be done from each lead and ground, but then saw info that said to check voltage between leads, which didn't make sense to me. Asked about it, but haven't found an answer yet. (edit: this is incorrect, the ac test is done between stator leads)
The stator AC output should be 40-70 volts on each lead, and all reasonably close to being equal.
If your stator was disconnected, the headlight wouldn't come on because the trigger wire to the relay wouldn't get any voltage.
Mine tested good seven times over a few weeks. Then after I did the MOSFET kit, the stator was suddenly dead shorted to ground on all three legs. So they're finicky on testing, sometimes they don't fail until they're warmed up also. My R/R wouldn't read anything at all, so I knew it was toast.
edit: If your test was done right, the stator AC voltage is way down, which means a trip down to stator land. See you there.
