Question something weird happened

I have 03 600 11xxxmi. Yesterday to and from work (6mi) my bike started popping, bogging, farting, backfire through carb. Last night it was worse. I had to pull over and gently force more fuel into carb so it wouldn't die. Once i did that she ran fine, i cranked it. got home and I went to go into grarge and it died and my battery is dead. went to go try and start this am it turned over, but not enough to start. I tried it again and the battery is dead. There is however SOME juice to at least turn starter sometimes. new battery was put in 5/14 napa(previous owner). I take care of my bike. I don't beat on it,i lube it, oil changes, etc... I have also noticed past couple months or more That when I am in neutral with signal on my neutral light would alternate flickering. Thats electrical problem. My light aren't dimmed or anything. I also hard wired my battery tender back in nov/dec. if that was the problem that would have happened months ago.

Last time this happened i switch gas stations. So last fill up I switched gas stations. I doubt this would cause my problem. Crappy gas???? I am wondering if i need to run Chemtol(?) in it.

Previous to yesterday. She ran like a champ. no problems whats so ever.

You might want to put a volt meter on it just to make sure the bike is charging the battery.

I checked the battery it was low>normal. I started it up and the alternator/stator barely registered. So since its a 03 with 11xxx mi I would say its the stator. Its been on charge and it starts right up. I also found the the regulator plug was black/burnt. the pins are not clean. So i have a new regulator coming as well.

on a 600 does the stator come with a gasket or do I use permatex?

I have had to replace the R/R on a few bikes but have yet to replace a stator. Use a ohms meter to check the stator windings to make sure they are not grounded out. You can also check the voltage on each of the three windings. Cranke up the bike and get it to like 3K Rpm for the voltage check and dont be surprised at a high voltage reading it is not regulated at this point and could be like 30-60 volts AC. You dont have to take the bike apart to do these tests just use the connector that plugs into the R/R. The 3 yellow wires are the stator wires

thanks for the help. BTW, I apologize for not responding sooner. Just not enough time in the days. I checked battery with tester it was good, checked stator with bike running. Almost dead. I replaced stator and rectifier. Runs beautiful. VVVRRROOOOMMM.

So thank you.
