The stator should have 2 wires coming from it. Using a voltmeter set to AC volts and the engine running full throttle, check the voltage on each of these wires. If you get a significant reading (reading can vary, but if I remember right, it will probably be around 20 volts, maybe more), then the stator is probably fine. Move on to the regulator, and find the same two wires. Make sure you have the same readings there that you had at the stator. If they are the same, then find the wire on the regulator that goes to the battery. With the voltmeter set on DC, check the voltage there with the engine running at full throttle. If you get a reading of around 13 volts or better, then the regulator is good. If you get nothing but the same reading as your battery, then the regulator is not working.
