Hi again, the 84 and 85 had the weekest of the stator's for the 1200's.
Checking the wiring i.e. connector for the stator and the rectifier/regulator the connectors are the week link. There are test procedures on here that can narrow down the problem. I have went with a car alternator on my last 2 1200's and am getting ready to install one my buddies 86 1200 aspencade.
Do check in the Technical Forum with questions as the guys over there are quick to help and they can help you trouble shoot the problem quickly too.
