Charging issue

Replaced stator and r/r with amazon parts about a month ago. Bike wont start after riding for awhile. Charged battery. Voltage at battery while bike is off is 12.3-12.5. Running its 11.3 and does not go up when revved. Could this be a bad stator?

Obviously, the charging system is not working.

Here is a link explaining the system and how to determine what is causing the problem.

I don't know what parts you got from Amazon, but there are some really poor Chinese parts out there that fail quickly and sometimes do damage to the bike as PaulPhilly alluded to. OEM or Rick's are the way to go.

I didnt taken into consideration that it could essentially fry the bike. I just figured itd not do its job lol. And my bad for my remark, I'm just so used to trolls online these days. I thought you were being snarky haha. I appreciate the reply. I have an oem stator coming in a few days now. I guess theres a difference when you pay $240 compared to Amazon's $40 lmao.

Be sure to use loctite on the stator bolts and torque them properly. Stator bolts coming loose is not unheard of.

I think Rick's stators are a bit less money than OEM, but both will serve you well.

The real bike killers are the Chinese Regulator/Rectifiers. Some fail in the over voltage mode and if you ignore the boiling battery, it fries the ECM and sometimes the cluster.

They were $39.95 on Ebay including the stator, R/R and gasket. Total crap.

Chinese knock off brake levers crashed a bunch of people before that and currently the crap Chinese stator covers are causing starter gear lock ups.

I learned first hand about the loctite. I had the bike for about 4 months and started hearing a gnarly grinding-ish sound coming from the cover at low revs and itd make a loud grind when the bike turned off. Pulled the cover and lo and behold a bolt walked all the way out.

I'm glad I posted this because I probably would've just bought another Amazon stator honestly lol.
