Thanks for the useful info Ruby Racing - I will try Triumph UK.
I checked the R/R, because I had a charging problem at the end of June, and it is the old type. It is, following the excellent diagnostic guide in this Forum, fully functional however. I checked the stator, and all three outputs were shorted to engine ground - pulled the cover to find two windings blackened.
Plenty of aftermarket stators available on E-Bay, but when postage is added in and then customs duty it started to look scary. On the advice of another biker, who restores old machines, I took the stator to a local armature rewinder and they repaired it for me. Slightly more than the cheapest aftermarket one on E-Bay, but no postage or duty so a relative bargain. Also fixed in two days (was stripped, sand-blasted, powder-coated and re-wound, most by hand as it was [for them] a non-standard part).
All back together, and battery voltage at idle is 14.2V
So far, so good, now it's a case of seeing if the system lasts!
I've attached before and after pics of the stator, the damage is far less extensive than others I've seen on the Forum.
