All my tests are saying stator. Is it possible it's gone so far that it's putting out 0 volts? Just making sure that I tested correctly, since I don't really have a positive control to work with.

Also, will the coil look bad when I pull it?

According to the manual, based on the resistance readings, the stator has a short and needs replaced.

Since it`s shorted it will probably look burned in some places. If some of the epoxy coating is burned and crumbled off you might want to consider changing the oil and filter at the same time.

I`m just in for the ride

I like $50 as much as anyone, it's just not what I expected.
Hmm... how else would you check the regulator, without a multimeter?

My service manual for my 08 says the following- see pictures.

Pull the rectifier and you are checking for resistance between the connections. What do you see in your manual?

Get the harbor freight multimeter. I did mine with that and found it to be faulty. See the service manual pages and then the harbor freight meter where I highlighted relevant info.

Look at the service manual for the Gen2 and you'll see the reason for my question. I'm not a fucking idiot. It's a legitimate question based on the service manual.

Nice. Classy guy here.

The hand tester is a meter.

What's the difference in the gen 2 manual ?

Class? Bite me. This thread was dead after my question had been dealt with and I used my multimeter to test the stator. I posted my findings here, in this thread, but you just read the first post and decided to be a wise guy. Feel free to get the last word in.
