Question about Honda Motorcycles
I'm hoping I don't have to trace the problem through the whole voltage system. Is it typical for an 86 Magna to have alternator/stator/magneto problems? It starts just fine but dies out immediately once the battery is disconnected. My (crappy) mechanic didn't even mention the problem. Maybe its worse than I thought?

SOURCE: charging system
I think 13.26 is very good for a bike of it's age. Especially charging a bigger cell battery such as a car battery! I wouldn't worry to much about your charging system looks to be doing just fine. almost sounds like your bike needs to be taken out for a Relief of sitting run.

your voltage/reg. can be tested in a couple different ways check ground res. check res. then revs. bias on diodes you have ac in dc out it sounds like you may have a diode gone bad allowing ac curent to flow causing the wires to get hot

Have the battery checked. may not be holding a charge and is discharging during use. all seems to point to poor batt status

the stator is probably damaged, where the wires come out of the casing check for voltage when the motor is running (dis-connect them from the main wiring harness first) if no voltage stator is trashed, if there is voltage then check your regulator and rectifier (these you can remove from the bike and take to a bike shop and have tested)
