Firstly I'd like to say hello. I just recently bought my 2nd TT600 and though I just became a member I've used this site to find information many times.
I did a search on this topic but didn't come up with a lot. My bike has been discharging its battery over a few days and I replaced the battery thinking that was the problem (previous owner never rode it). That didn't do anything though.
I removed the left fairing and tested the 3 wires coming out of the alternator cover with a voltmeter (had my black needle on the battery - and pressed the red needle to each of the wires). The best of the 3 wires showed about 2.5 volts with the bike running.
Now I'm in search of a new stator (instead of paying the stealer). On this site I found info saying these older TT's have very low amp alternators. My question is will a 03 Speed Four stator work on my 01 TT600? And is it an upgrade (something like 27 amps vs 33). Also does the test I performed on the stator sound correct? I tested the battery and it's fine.
Lastly. is it necessary to replace the rotor and stator, or does the rotor usually not give any problems? And is there a way to test the rectifier/could that be the problem? Sorry for the long first post!
Oh and here's the bike (I've since eliminated the rear fender):
