Stator Waveform with an O'scope.
If you have a DC power supply you should see what you see on a battery but possibly have some ripple due to AC source not being filtered. This should be similar to an alternator/rectifier system on a car or a stator/rectifier system on a bike.
If you can put a DC meter on your battery while the bike is running, can't you use a standard O'scope in the same manner to check the health of your stator by observing the waveform of the output? The D C meter will only give you the DC component of the voltage.
If the stator is healthy it should present a nice sinusoidal waveform with a given P to P voltage? How much of an AC component should you see at the battery terminals?
I have a couple of O'scopes laying around gathering dust.
