The battery that was in it when the headlights blew was an old battery, and died after I got it, so that's why i bought a new AGM battery. I have ZERO china parts on this thing, all OEM. The Chinese part I bought mentioned above was from when I was desperate and lazy so I bought a cheap part to see if it would fix the problem, but I will not use it.
Here's a list of what I've done so far so that we are all on the same page:
Installed new NGK plug
Cleaned, blew out with air, and greased ALL connectors
Disconnected taillight assembly and wire due to clogged dirt and other crap
Tested neutral safety switch, reverse switch (wire right next to neutral switch), kill switch, starter switch, headlight switch, and fog light switch for functionality, and all PASSED.
I "tested" the stator with a multimeter and not a peak voltage meter, and it put out about 14v in AC.
I also tested the pulse coil and it was spitting some voltage but I can't remember how much.
Cleaned and greased all ground connectors (haven't check all of them for conductivity, only a couple when testing the switches mentioned before... ill check all of them tommorow)
Here's a list of some of the important parts I've ordered yesterday all OEM from rockymountain:
2x Headlight bulbs
I haven't hooked up my multi meter to the ignition switch, but I don't see a need. Should I? I don't know what I'd look for lol
The parts might get here Thursday, I'll update if it runs or not, and if it runs, i'll be sure to check the battery voltage while running like you said.
Thanks again everyone for the help.
