i tested the stator and voltage regulator , they both failed the test . got nothing out of either test.....no values. i know how to use a meter . quad runs fine ...just wont charge. im assuming the ignition works off the battery so as long as it has sufficient voltage the quad will run. hell, i even started quad with regulator and stator wires unplugged,except the trigger wire plug was connected. i guess the regulator fried the stator or something here. already fixed the bolt issue but stator wasnt tore up like i expected it to be. thought i got lucky ....huh ANYONE ELSE GO THIS ROUTE WITH THEIR MACHINE ?
