What else can i check?

Why do you think there is something wrong with it? Did you test it for output installed Before the reg/rect?

Yes, there is no continuity between the yellow and the iron and the white and iron.
I could ride it, but eventually the battery will drain, correct?

You cannot go by the book as you have a modified stator. BD should have the specs.
Thing here is, it is probably your stator but not definitely, based on what we know at the moment. Could be a bad connector, poor ground even a bad rect/reg (though doubtful).
Speak to BD, get the spec's the stator should test at. Check all your connections.
Yeah, you ride it like it is and you probably will kill the battery.

Ok, at least you know it is not shorted to ground and that there is some continuity between the white and yellow leads. Too bad you did not attach them directly to the meter and check for voltage at idle and at speed before you removed it.
i can put it back in there and see what im getting. But Do you mean pull the yellow/white wire connector(coming from the stator) out of it's mate(tucked up under the frame top tube) and stick the dmm probes in there to see what AC voltage im getting?
I can also try what Ricky suggests.

A man in a chair with running shoes on may look fast but put him on the track to be sure.

Engine/ignition/lights off, battery rests at around 13.25v. So it seems there is charging going on. Right?
My last battery died, i believe from internal injury. It wouldnt charge even with the tender left on it overnight. There was even a bulge on the top of it's case. But i never did test my charging system when i installed the ds kit 2 months ago. I just went riding and the bike worked fine until the battery died a month and a half later.
Im waiting for a reply from BD on the charging specs. I'll try the bulb test when the temp around here gets below 90.

If no change, it says the R/R needs replacing. I emailed them for a replacement. I did check all the connectors, removed and reconnected.
