charging when cold but not when engine warms up.

I recently replaced the stator on my 1986 Honda VT-700-C, it worked just perfect but then slowly quit charging the new battery. so my question is......, when the origional stator fried before I put in the new one, was it cause of the rectifier/regulator?. the part's house say's they have hardly ever seen a bad alternator rotor.

Re: charging when cold but not when engine warms up.

It sounds like there could be another problem causing the charging coil to fail. I would check the reg/rec next. coils can work (have continuity) while cold, but as they get hot they can break down, then start working again as it cools. Not that easy to check unless you can find a way of heating the coil whilst checking continuity. You could put it in a pan of oil on a hob.
