Question about Polaris ATV
The fact that you only get 47 volts indicates the stator has an open, there is nothing else but the stator that causes this low un-regulated voltage reading, all stators are tested the sam no matter what they come out of, car motorcycle, ATV etc.
here is the basic test.
STATOR TESTING.—The stator winding can be tested for opens and grounds after it has been disconnected from the alternator end frame. If the ohmmeter reading is low or the test lamp lights when connected between each pair of stator leads (fig. 2-31), the stator winding is electrically good. A high ohmmeter reading or failure of the test lamp to light when connected from any one of the leads to
the stator frame (fig. 2-32) indicates the windings are not grounded. It is not practical to test the stator for shorts due to the very low resistance of the winding.

The only thing the shop book will tell you is how to test stator resistance. If any of the measurements are off, the stator is bad and needs to be replaced. Stator's seem to be a common problem with Polaris. I have had to change a few on different Sportsmans. Not only that, but the dealer had it in stock. That's gotta tell you something. I think a new stator is around $250.00, but don't hold me to that. Hope this helps and good luck...
