    Im riding a 99 superglide. It died on me lost all power. Ignition module was toast. What do you guys think? Am i going in the right direction does the stator or regulator sound about right to be the problem?

    My guess would be yes, 1 of them went south on you and contributed to the ignition module burnout. You can test both to see if 1 or the other is the culprit.

    Depending on mileage, even if one was bad. I would consider changing both IMO.

    Bodeen has you covered. A little more $$ but it saves a lot of headaches.

    I was riding up to ga. this weekend and my flsts all of a sudden started missing a little then died. It was my stator. your problem could be the regulator since it fried the ignition module and died all at once.

    According to my friend (HD certified mechanic) staters are the most common failure point

    The ignition module failed. There is no reason to believe it was caused by the charging system.

    Instead of condemning the charging system, test it.
