Is there a way to be certain it’s the stator? Are we certain it is the stator?
If your testing is correct then with the bike running you should have around 75v at the terminals of the stator before going in tot he reg rec

Your readings don't even make 4 volts

If you are unsure feel free to Google on how to test a stator and a reg/rec and run the tests again

There is some really good guides out there

Just to rule out any problem with meter test it on 240v on your house, obvs don't kill yourself 😁

Thank you everyone. Meter definitely works, I’m happy with your advice/knowledge @Stu and the video that @dynax posted describes exactly what you did. I have ordered a new stator and alternator gasket from Wemoto, I have also ordered some brake pads but will leave those until i have the bike working again.

Thanks lots,
