When I got back to the highway I opened it up in 4th, maybe 7500 rpm and it started showing 13.7 again. I have a ce series regulator to put on it but I haven't gotten it done yet but if the stator was burnt it wouldn't go in and out, would it? I suppose I will get another stator just in case but this seems weird. The temp was in the mid 80's so I don't think it was heat related
The best thing to do would be to spend about 15 minutes to properly diagnose the stator's function. It will tell you if it is functioning correct. I wrote up a how to. If you search for it it has the procedures to run the test.
