Staor is bad. Smell the primary oil. If it smells like ass then the stator is shot and needs to be replaced. Battery and voltage regulator should be checked as well.

Yup. Classic symptom of charging system failure when you have electronic ignition.

Do a Stator test with a multi-meter. If it checks good, then replace regulator.

I would recommend contacting California Phil

902 Lincoln St, Concordia, KS 66901
(785) 243-9991

I'm not connected to him but when the stator in my 02 E-glide puked he set me up with an improved three phase system (stator, rotor and voltage regulator) that greatly improved output, even at idle. The kit was an exact swap out and works great. Great guy to work with too.
