Reply to your Q on 6-2-08: Caasey, this is definately an R/R issue. Make sure you charge your battery fully (12.89 volts). You can test the stator, unplug it from teh R/R at teh connector, next to the engine case. Thats the one witrh 3 yellow wires. Start your bike, and place the + lead into one of the connectors on the stator side. Increase the engine rpm and watch the volts increase. Point of note, make sure the meter is set to volts a/c as the r/r converts from a/c to d/c current. Anyway, the voltage should rise to its peak which I think is about 75 volts unless you reach 5K first. Watch the meter, if the voltage drops off, then the stator itself is bad. Hope you get it fixed.
