I'm getting readings of about 5 volts per lead coming directing out of the stator. I assume there is little doubt that the stator does not need replaced, corret?

Make sure you are set to AC volts on your meter and not DC. To test the stator you need to put a probe into one of the connecting yellow wires that run from the stator itself and the second prob into a second yellow wire (you will need to take 3 different readings ie: 1st. and 2nd. wires, 1st and 3rd. wires 2nd. and 3rd. wires). Your reading should be in the 50volt range at an rpm of 5K with "little" variances between all three. If your only reading 5 volts on AC setting at 5K then you most certainly have a bad stator. Good luck

Ride safely.

Also check dc resistance from each yellow lead to each other and to engine case. Should be very low yellow to yellow, and infinite (or close) yellow to case.

Be sure to disconnect the yellow leads from the r/r when doing all tests.

I check the resistance already, and that all checked out. I'll do some more voltage tests.

Thanks for the info.
