There are 3 leads coming home the stator.1 to the electronic ignition trigger and 2 to the regulator/rectifier.Correct me if im wrong here,but there should be at least 6 to 7 watts coming off the wires coming to the regulator combing them into 12 volts?correct?The manual I looked at showed no voltage at what should be there.I think I have a bad stator.There is very little juice coming to the trigger.I have no spark too.the coil is good I tested it.Not to confident of the trigger for the flywheel,but I don't think the stator is producing the right voltage.Any help would be greatly appreciated or the right manual too.

The two wires from the stator coil should have 24 or so volts AC with the engine running. If the engine doesn't run, pull the spark plug and spin it over to measure the AC volts. This gets rectified and regulated to the 12v DC. that charges the battery. The ignition trigger is completely separate from the stator and will not produce  very much voltage.
