Went to do the stator test to check the continuity and couldn't get the stator unplugged from the regulator plug. Upon looking at the plug I realized that the whiteish plastic around the plug was extremely brown almost black. Finally got the plug off to find that it look it it had exploded and it was extremely corroded. Looks like im purchasing a new regulator and stator.

Cause the stator plug over-heat / exploded inside the rectifier plug. So If I just got a new stator I would have be plugging in a new plug into a melted plug (or vise versa)

..... if there are no additional electrical loads on the bike (HID lighting being the #1 killer of electrical systems), when you replace the melted parts with new, go through every single pull apart electrical connector on the bike and inspect. When you have it apart, flood each one with dielectric grease to prevent corrosion in the future. The action of taking the connectors apart will scrape away the rust between the contacts. When you fill it with the grease, that will provide a barrier to oxygen so the corrosion cannot re-form. Pushing the contacts back in place will scrape away a little more of the grunge on the pins and make a good electrical contact.

They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "

Finally got around to working on the bike, installed a new stator, stator gasket and rectifier. Plugged all the new components in and the bike ran great for the rest of the day. The next day rolled around and the bike started up instantly, but about 30 minutes into the ride the bike was dead. I am completely lost now with what is wrong. New Stator, new rectifier but the bike still isnt charging. Any ideas? :/

I replaced the battery when I was intially trying to figure the issue out. A new battery didn't fix it so I returned the new one because I felt nothing was wrong with the old one. I then replaced the stator and rectifier but continued to use the old battery. I guess all three of these components were bad. Ill put in a new battery and come back with information.

You did 2 of the 3 main components in the charging system.
If the battery wasn't kept charged it will kill the battery.

IF you still have an issue which is possible but slim, you have a major drain on the charging system. The only thing what could do that would be aftermarket bit's that didn't get properly fused.
Doubt that's the case.

x2. Parasitic draw or short...

But the new battery being taken back "because you felt like it wasn't the battery" is silly. What we WANT the issue to be has nothing to do with the issue lol.

I thought about the parasitic draw, but the time frame didn't seem right.
The short with no fuse would torch the offending wires.
Follow the smoke or look for the crispy black wire.

Agreed.

Mango,

Did you ever at any point in this process actually use a meter, and find out what's going on?

The shop manual has detailed instructions on exactly this issue........

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around.
