The pickup coil mod is a good idea, and if you end up swapping the stator I'd do it at the same time. There is also an ignition coil mod that I'll be doing to my bike here soon. It can also help older bikes with questionable wiring.

dont give up on charging system yet.. its possible its not up to par.. but...
hard starting when warm is a known issue on these bikes... Aside from the charging/battery causing it, the pickup coil mod may be what you need, or maybe irridium plugs, or possibly the coil relay mod..
they all can fix or help warm start issues.

ex-basket case has trouble starting after stalling out
my '85 vulcan sometimes stalls out at a stop light, and then i can't get her started again. after all the cars behind me honk as they go by, i call up a friend and get a jump, and then she starts right up. i'm under the impression that i have a problem with my charging system cuz the battery doesnt have enough juice to start it again after a bit of riding. i have a maintenance free battery and relocated the r&r right above the passenger footpeg. do yall think it would be a safe bet to assume my stator is bad? lookin for a second opinion before i go ripping things apart. also any ideas of why it stalls out would be helpful too
