Bad stator means reject the bike? Really? It's $100 plus an engine pull. But I'll bet there's nothing wrong with it. Burned out connectors, bad grounds, bad electronics - much more likely. I think good stators are often mistakenly chucked.
I am really hoping that is the case for sure, I know I don't know much but I think it might be wiring, and luckily if I do have to pull the engine I found the forum that has the video.
