Well the good news is that the stator sounds fine based on those readings! I would suggest doing a diode test on the RR just to make sure that it is good. After that I would suggest putting a multimeter in line with the battery to check the amps with the bike off. It should be 0. If you are seeing a power draw then you have a problem somewhere in the wiring.
The problem for me though, are the readings at the battery. They are low. So I am guessing either the RR has a problem, or there is an issue in the wiring between the RR and the battery. Have you opened up the loom and traced the wires from the RR to the battery?
Also, as I think about this, I am remembering a bunch of posts recently regarding the brown wire causing some major headaches in the charging system. I think SlimVR was the one. (sorry Slim if I am remembering poorly!)
