Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger
The wires from the stator come out of the primary just behnd the rear cylinder. Find the plug where the regulator connects to these wires. Unplug the plug and test the stator end of the wires.
Using a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) insert one lead into the metal contacts in the plug. Put the meter's function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLT scale. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should have at least 25 volts AC output from the stator.

Tips for a great answer:
To check the 2000 FLSTF STATOR. Turn ignition key switch OFF, then disconnect the voltage regulator connector from alternator stator wiring. THEN connect an ohmmeter set on the RX1 scale with one lead into either of the stator sockets and the other lead to a good ground. And test for continuity - a good stator will show no continuity (0 ohms) across either stator socket - any other reading indicates a grounded stator which must be replaced. THEN remove the ground lead and insert lead it into the other stator socket - the resistance (with ohmmeter still set on the RX1 scale) should be 0.1-0.2 ohms - if the resistance is lower a stator short is indicated. Which means that the stator is damaged and must be replaced. - if the resistance is higher (OL on meter), an open is indicated and again, the stator is damaged and must be replaced.
