Hello,

There are only the two components that make up your charging system. That voltage regulator, and the stator. I see that you replaced the connector for the stator. That can possibly mean your stator has shorted as well, but there is a way to check that. Do you have use of a multimeter that has the ohms, or resistance setting?

How’ed i miss that
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Shouldn’t rite?

nope. That indicates a insulation breakdown in the windings of the stator. That stator is bad. Small chance it took out the regulator as well. But i would definately replace that stator and see what the voltages look like from there. If its charging great, if not the shorted stator took out the regulator with it. Any questions on this please let me know I will be more than happy to help further.
