Re: STATOR/ALTERNATOR TEST??
Check the Electrex website (electrex.com?). There is a real good fault-finding chart there. Honda r/r's are prone to failure, however, if it's just a short, it may work sometimes, and sometimes not. Do you own a voltmeter? If so, try to hook it up to the battery and go out for a ride. Monitor the voltage to see if it goes up or down. That's your r/r effin' up. You can check you stator also by starting the bike and unpluging the stator (plug w/three yellow wires). Switch you voltmeter to a/c and check voltage between all three terminals. It should run about 75v @ 3K rpm, IIRC. My money is on your r/r. Like I said, they're known to fail. Good luck!
