Also, does the tail light work? I think though they are on different circuits, where the tail light is on when the bike is 'on' , regardless if the motor is running...
There are only two fuses in the circuit- one on (-) wire and one on (+). But they are essentially in same circuit.
I suppose that the stator is the next thing to check, but if the bike is running, I think it's working, though someone else here will know better how to test it. I would think the bulb would still light, though dimly, if the stator was not pushing enough volts..?
Prob not much help there, but maybe something's to think about?
I burned my light out a couple weeks ago an need to get a new bulb. Hopefully I am not entierly in the same boat as you.

I tried putting a multi meter set to AC on the pins of the headlight plug when the bike was running, I didn't get any reading at all on my old analogue multi meter I got from my dad. The tail light is working as normal when I turn the ignition on. I've read some things about the regulator rectifier, I wonder if it needs replaced? I don't know how to test it.

So would I be right in saying my stator seems to be working fine, so could it be the regulator rectifier at fault?
