I've read the forums on stators and regulators... and I'm trying to figure out if I have a problem or not. I have had my bike go dead a couple times, but I don't know if I had not had it on a trickle charger enough or it's not charging enough. (I've always kept it on a trickle when I remember).
'01 DX w/original stator and regulator. When I test the battery right after starting it shows 12.5v at 2,000 RPM and 12.8v at 3,000 RPM.
When I test the stator--and I don't know if I'm doing it right--with my multimeter set on 200 VAC i'm getting a reading of 12.8 across any combination of the three terminals. Engine is running at idle (~1k RPM).
I don't know if this means the regulator or Stator is bad--or is this just normal behavior. I suspect 12.8volts DC at 3k RPM is low.
