I'm no expert for sure, but if you are getting over 14 volts at the reg, seems like the stator must be working, so if it's only 12 at the battery, maybe the regulator is bad, or there is a bad/loose connection? @dezz, @okbear, @reogem most likely can clear it up for sure.I have a 2008 700 grizzly im only getting 12 volts at the battery but I’m getting 14.5 volts or higher at the regulator any ideas?
This is a very valid point. I never noticed you have a 2008 model 700.07's and 08's are notorious for stator problems my 08 went at 1500 well maintained miles. There are some threads on here that tell you how to check the stator. I remember reading them when I found mine toasted. I would look that way first as it is way more common failure than the regulator from all I've read.
Either stator should be fine. I went with the RM stator because cheaper. I've had no issues with it just make sure and cover the exposed stator wires with automotive plastic loom to prevent rubbing.do you recommend going with heavy duty aftermarket RM stator or is factory stator okay along with updated cover and oil line?
