Riding today, I had nightmarish things happen to me. Running out of gas, I got gas just in time. 2 miles after, it choked and died, and I was able to pop start it in first since I was rolling. In the next ten miles, I dealt with bouts of clean running mixed with bad engine coughs and sputters, with a hell of a wacky tachometer.
Got home, and battery is at 12.5v, but doesn't go over 13 when revved up to 5k. I'm getting 30 amp readings from the stator-r/r connector (unplugged from the r/r) across each combination at idle. I'll go out now to check resistance.
Edit - on 200 ohm setting, touching the voltmeter leads together gives me 21 ohms. Each combination of stator wires (testing at the connector previously mentioned) starts at 150 ohms and drops down to high 90s. I switched it over to that strange arrow with a line setting (continuity maybe) and got around 150.
It's a tpe stator, I wonder what is happening......
Also note, after opening the oil cap, i get light, wispy white smoke.
