I posted this in the Alternator thread but want to replace the regulator now too.

So....

About 4k miles ago or Feb. 12 to be precise, I replaced my BMW stator with an Electrosport Stator. Life was good. I have a voltage monitor from Twisted Throttle; RED - less than 11.5 volts, AMBER - 11.9 to 11.5 volts, and GREEN - 12 volts +.

When I first installed the Electrosport I would get Green at idle. Last couple of mornings on start up I would have a Red light until the rpm's were above about 2500. Today riding home from work at 75mph ~ 5K I had a flashing Red which I take to mean zero stator output.

Tomorrow I will test the stator as listed in other threads. I am hugely bummed.

I have not yet had the OEM stator re-wound. Does anyone have any recommendations? I live in Las Vegas, NV.

I read about someone who replaced 3-4 stators (re-wound) in fairly rapid succession. Is it possible that the cause of the Stator failure is the Regulator? I got about 4k miles on a new Electrosport. I will test tomorrow but I imagine that one of the windings has opened or shorted.
