I'm not having a lot of luck at the minute ffs. My bike isn't charging and I bought a new r/r but it still won't charge, battery seems ok and holds the charge from a battery charger. I'm trying to check the stator but I'm not 100% on how to do it, tried utube but just getting more confused. I've disconnected the rectifier and checked the volts at A/C. reading on all 3 wires at idle are 3.5- 3.5-1.2. They all increase when revved @5000 revs but still only go up to about 10,000 on 2 connections and about 5 or 6ooo on the third. Is my stator buggered ???
My  bike is 100% rust free...... I bought the bike and got the rust free .  🚵


I had similar issue and it was defective stator, coils.

A/C reading on all 3 wires at @5000 should be over 40V
Measure resistance between all 3 wires. According to SM, it should be 0.1-0.5 ohm at room temperature.

There is no option to attach files here, but I can send you Charging system section or complete service manual in pdf it you need one.
