Default 660 stator not working....voltage regulator getting hot

my battery is not charging, and the voltage reg is getting warmer than it should (you cant hold your hand on it for more than 3-4 seconds). i have inspected all wiring and nothing is rubbed through anywhere.... would it be safe to say my stator is bad?

It could also be the regulator.
Or even but doubtfully a bad battery
First check for dirty connections.
unplug regulator and test stator output this is usually AC
You can also do a resistance check on the stator windings.
I would believe if the regulator is getting hot then the stator is putting out.
I would not run the bike this way as a shorted regulator will fry your stator.
I am only speaking from my knowlage of motorcycles and quads in general.
Im sure there is some stickies around here somewhere.

It would be much more likely that the rec/reg is bad - perhaps a shorted diode in the rectifier.
