By under the plastic, I do not mean within the plastic sleeve, I mean Under the entire plastic sleeve. It is a hard rectangular connector with thick electrical wires (black and red)

Connector on the left is the output, the one on the right is the Stator (3 yellow wires) connector

Looks like I will have to take the bike apart to get to the wires like I want so I ordered a regulator and will replace after all.

Put in the new regulator, doing the same as it did before. Something just doesn't seem right.

Before while coming back from a firework outing the voltage at one time would hang around 12.7 - 12.9 and I had to work to get the voltage to climb.

Below is a video.

That still looks like a regulator to me..
I've never seen 14.anything at idle.. Ever...
The regulator is capping off the voltage at 13.8V which is too low.. It should be between 14.5 and 14.8 volts...
IF it working identical with the original regulator, then you have to look to the battery or stator, but neither makes sense to me. A stator usually you loose 1/3 of your charging ability...
You have a real mystery on your hands there..
Both regulators were very similar results??

Yes both regulators are similar in results. I am not confident in the reliability of this the way it is, not sure what to do from here. The battery is not old and starts the bike fine even after sitting for a couple of months not connected to a battery tender, it is a maybe.

Stator on a 3rd Gen, just have not heard of it.

Here are some refresher photos for you Hootmon.

Think harder Hootmon, if you know of anyone, ask, show them the video.

Get a hold of Lawrence.. He is the Brain Trust I rely on when I'm stumped!!

Lawrence, well he normally comes around but haven't seen him. I will see what I can do.

I will try to find him on facebook.

I am also going to connect a jumper cable to the ground post and attach to somewhere on the frame or motor to see if I have a bad ground. It appears I am not getting enough amps, stator as Sledge Hammer mentioned?, maybe the next option.

Stator comes in via the yellow wires through regulator then through the black connector, where is the connection that ties the regulator output to charge the battery? That would be the last connection point other than the ground wire, yes?
