Re: overcharging on a 93 fatboy
The only defect a stator would have is it's either delivering no or low voltage output. By design, it will always put out higher voltage than required. It is the job then of the regulator to control how much is pushed to the battery. If the battery is overcharging, then the regulator would be at fault.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

that sounds like a bad connection. follow the positive and negative cables around and insure good connections. lack of lights and dash panel info is a sign of bad connection or hate to say bad battery. if you had lights and dash lit up i would start at the starter area next.
Here is a few tests you can run. First with the bike off take a
multimeter in VDC check the battery voltage at the battery. (should be
at 12.5 VDC) If not first charge the battery. Second start the bike,
with it running and multimeter again in VDC check voltage at the
battery while slowly opening the throttle(should see between 13.2 and
14.5 VDC at the battery) If you have more then 15 VDC then you have a
bad voltage regulator. If you have less then battery voltage from the
first test. You may have a bad stator and/or a bad voltage regulator.
Third test with bike turned off and multimeter in continuity. Place one
meter lead into either of the two holes for your stator lead(coming out
of the front of the primary drive case) the other meter lead to any
good ground. If you get a tone or continuity then you have a grounded
stator, and it has to be replaced before proceding any further with
charging system tests. If you do NOT have continuity then check the
wires from the voltage regulator running back to the battery for any
breaks or chaffing, if none are found. I would have the battery load
tested as well.Good Luck and thanks for usinf Fixya.com Let me know what you find please.
Could be a bad ground, but u have some work to do if you dont find it. Try charging up yer battery ....put a multimeter on it and check the reading... Then fire it up and check the reading......voltage should increase while its running ( to about 13.5-14 volts)....if it decreases - u have a charging problem, and if u replaced the regulator....it could be the stator ... Take off the inspection cover on the primary - Is there a burnt smell ?
Problem is....replacing the stator isnt a simple task....you have to remove the compensating sproket and clutch....I wouldnt mess with it unless u know what your doing
sounds like a possible voltage regulator problem.check to ensure battery terminals are tight.make sure there are no shorts.also first check for a blown fuse.that more than likely is your problem!!! ROBERT-BIG RED ONE !!!
