You need a service manual for stator & R/R checking procedures. Look in the Engine section for removal/installation procedures and the Electrical section for checking procedures. Pay attention to the condition of the connector between the stator and the R/R. Replace it if there's any hint of it overheating. Not sure about yours but some of the stator cover attaching bolts may use sealing washers. You need to reinstall them on the correct bolts or, better yet, replace them with new. The magnetic force between the stator and rotor can lead to pinched fingers during reinstallation, so be careful. My information may be out of date but both Electrosport and RaceTech Electric had downloadable charging system fault finding diagrams. They're similar but I preferred the latter.
Stretched, you say?
P.S. John, that's some good information in your link.
