I have been reading your posts now for a month or so (and it is full of GREAT info- thanks) and I need help. I have a 99 SV650 naked with a lot of miles. It is my first "project bike". I recently eBayed a use voltage regulator but I have noticed that one of the 3 yellow wires coming form the stator going to the rectifier is beginning to melt. You think I need to replace the stator? Any ideas? I have attached a pic of the wires and my WIP bike. Thanks again!
