When holding the RPM up into the range (2500? I forget the number in the repair guide), the voltage does climb, appearing that the stator is charging at that RPM. The shop that has the bike said they did analysis and did not expect the stator, at least not so far. As far as what happens in between revving the bike at a stand still and what happens during a 30 minute ride, I couldn't say. Which is my next puzzle piece: I think it's worse than "Not charging", it drains the battery. I can go out with a fully charged battery and in ~15 minutes, turn off bike, key on, the bike is unable to start. This was attributed to bad starter when hot theory, but now I've got a new starter and a dead battery. Would a 'non charging' stator cause the battery to deplete that fast?
