Hi I am new to posting to this forum but have used the helpful advice on it a lot lately. I have a 1975 CL360, after a carb clean and points and valve adjustment I got it running and took it for a lap, the battery was dead within 1/3 of a mile. The battery keeps dying after trying to kick the bike over with the Kickstarter unless it starts first or second kick also. I am on my 3rd battery now and I tried the kohler regulator rectifier mod, didn’t seem to help, I followed the instructions on this website for install. The problem I am having now is that for the past two days every time I connect the battery smoke comes out of the stator, I can clearly see it because I took the cover off to check, seems like it comes from the wires at the back of stator. I have a used replacement stator I can install but I don’t want to fry it too. I could also get a new regulator rectifier if needed. The smoke is concerning me though. I do need to note that the previous owner thought it would be a idea to jump the bike off with a car, not a good idea. Any help appreciated.
