Right, back from the show, did some checks.

All the connectors and wires in the entire system seemed undamaged, not melted, not corroded. 

There was no continuity between any of the yellow wires and the frame.

I do not have a 1 Ohm meter, but at 200 Ohm this was the reading for each of the three yellow wires:

Doesn't mean much I guess..but it was consistent between all of the wires.

Then I ran the engine at 4000 rpm and there was 31V coming out of each of the yellow wires. According to the manual that is too low by 20V.

Then I connected the regulator and ran the engine at 4000 rpm, and virtually no volts came out of the positive pin coming out of the regulator. 

So either the voltage going in to the regulator is too low for any volts to come out, meaning the stator is kaput, or 31V is enough going in and regulator is kaput.


Also, I have connected the vacuum pipes of no3 and no4 to my petcock to make that operate, but I noticed that the engine was running much more smoothly with the vacuum just sucking air rather than getting resistance when I put my thumb on it....? is that maybe related to the low rev's stuttering?

Six-Pot-Cafe in the making...
