Being new to stators myself, I believe the only thing that would cause a grounding issue would be if the windings on the stator were contacting the the body of the stator. That would mean that the insulating lamination on the wire was damaged and you would either need to replace it or get it re-wound with new wire.
I don't think that the stator being installed off-center in the rotor would cause a ground, even if it were rubbing, since those pieces should not be electrically charged.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

So if 2 legs are grounding, what causes this? Defective stator? Something I did during installation?
What exactly is happening when it's being grounded to the frame? Does this mean it's in contact with the frame? Not sure what this means or what to look out for once getting another new stator.

This is a lot like the thread on tanner's bike, he had a new charging system that wasn't working. He tried the Two-Wire mod and fixed it.
Could be one of the JB relays pulling the charge volts down.
You can try the Blue Wire mod (headlight relay).
You can try the Two-Wire mod, (start relay).
All bets are off if one stator leg is still grounding out.

|JETHRO||From what I have read you have done everything correctly ,IT SHOULD WORK put a multimeter across the battery on 20 DCV then rev the bike , you should see an increase of volts up to 14.5v at about 4000 revs.|

|Reckoning||What's a test I could run to make sure the voltage is making it past the fuse and actually to the terminal?|

when you charge with the charger, are you connecting directly to the battery? if so, and it wont charge from the stator and r/r, I would suspect a bad ground somewhere.
Most mosfet kits include enough wire to be able to directly wire both neg (ground) and positive outputs to the battery, and thats recommended, as long as the positive lead from r/r has a fuse in it (30-50a)
