just bought my 1986 goldwing interstate was running great.got home from a ride with friends and bike died. took it out again and it was fine. fourth of july weekend took the bike out again for short ride and again the bike died when i arrived home .checked voltage to battery was getting 13.7 volts to terminals,so changed battery.rode the bike back and forth to work for three days thinking problemm was behind me,not!!!! Charged battery at work and got back home.Ichecked this great site out and did a stator test out . my test showed 68- 70 volts between legs but when it came to resistance all three legs measured .5 ohms and according to the test it should be 1.2 ,am i okay :? thanks

Did the battery go dead or did it die from something else? With the voltage output from the stator (68-70 volts) there is nothing wrong with it. 13.7 volts to battery is fine. Do you have extra lights or other add ons that may be drawing more than the system can supply?

Do those wires read any connection to earth. It should be infinite resistance on all 3 legs.....Steve

Might want to get a permanent voltmeter on the bike so you can monitor what's going on while riding. It was one of the first things I did on my 83.
