# ***** is regulator and 22 is the stator (alternator) under the flywheel.

Both can be checked with a voltmeter.

Usually the problem is the regulator , as it converts the AC voltage from the stator to Dc volts to charger the battery. But the test for the stator will confirm. The stator is unplugged from the regulator and with voltmeter set on AC volts, read the two wires , using the two meter probes with engine running at full throttle. Reading needs to be above 28 volts Ac. If it is, the stator is good.
