Question about Honda Motorcycles
The stator has no output. The stator has to have continuity to all legs without short to ground. Best bet, check voltage at battery when not running. Check again when running. Voltage should be at least 1-1.5 volts higher when running. If not you should start at the battery and work your way to the alternator. If all wiring is tight and not frayed or broken, check each individual part in the charging system.

First, change the spark plug and oil. The stock plug is NGK DPR8Z and 10w40 motor oil is what you need. There is no oil filter. Changing the oil acts as the "filter". Lubricate the chain. be sure it has no kinks in it. If kinks, then get a new 520 chain. The stock sprockets are 50 tooth and 13 tooth. Lubricate the control cables with liquid graphite, ( Lock Eze ). Make sure the tires have adequate pressure. Check the spokes and snug up any that are lose.
The carbs will be your only problem area. The bike has four valves and a primary/secondary carb set up. The dual carb setup makes the bike more responsive. The set up does mean twice the effort to clean the carbs and twice the likelihood something will go sour. Sitting for two years is not a good thing. The gas in the carbs evaporates and leaves varnish to gum up the jets and passageways. If the fuel petcock (gas valve) was left open, you can really have a problem. Remove the gas tank. Dump out the gas tank and inspect it. Is there rust in the drained gas? If so, remove the petcock and put a LOT of large nuts into the tank and shake the tank well to let the abrasive action of the nuts break away the loose rust. Flush the tank well. You may want to consider a tank liner. This will solve the rust problem forever. Google “ kreem fuel tank liner “ or go to
Disassemble and clean the petcock. Now install an in-line fuel filter and make sure the fuel line is clear. On the bottom of the carb(s) is a drain plug. Remove the plug and and hope it is clean. Open the gas valve and see if gas is flowing past the float valve. If you lucked out and the plug was pretty clean and WITHOUT RUST, go ahead and install the plug, turn on the gas and see if it will start up. If the bike runs poorly after warming up, your next project is to clean the carbs.
FOR EACH carb > Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside of the carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the carb back together and install the carb. Clean or replace the air filter. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

If you are getting 13volt output and it revs and gets 14.5volts it would appear to be charging. As you would get a drop in voltage if it were not. Stator is there for working. Check your voltage relay as it may be sticking which would cause it to run on system and not be sending charge to battery. Poor ground would also keep battery from being properly charged
